    Injection

    Say: in-JEK-shun

    An injection is another word for a shot. Nobody likes getting shots, but they sure come in handy when it comes to keeping you healthy.

    An injection is when the doctor uses a needle to put medicine or a vaccine into your body. Kids who have diabetes may have to give themselves injections of a medicine called insulin.
