MB School Nurse Helps Children Overcome Fear of Shots Through New Book, “Vickie The Brave”

Congratulations to Lower School Nurse, and now author, Shanna Salazar! An illustrated book that she wrote entitled “Vickie The Brave” provides children help in overcoming their fear of shots while exploring the benefits of a vaccine. It is available to buy through Amazon, Walmart and Barnes & Noble. In the book, rhyme, imagination, and visual steps engage the young reader and show how easy it is to be brave when getting a shot. This story was created to acknowledge a child’s fear while helping them conquer that fear with age-appropriate tricks and, of course, TLC.
