12 is different from 5. It also isn't like a screaming fight or anything, she's just trying to prevent a clear opening to her shoulder and keeping her from jerking once the needle is in. She rarely cries after, she's just against the idea of it. Her first COVID test (deep one) also made her much more nervous.Never seen or heard of scenes like that. On TV they show compliant calm kids every day now, nobody obstreperous.
Also news isn't going to show a kid going apeshit when they are doing a story on "Get your kids the shot!"
Eta: "Holding down" is an extreme way of describing it, it's holding her arm or leg still.
