Quotes: Afraid of Needles
The needle was four feet long and thick as a pencil. I tried to run but the doctor had been a olympic javelin champion.
Medical Mel, Dilbert

Nobody likes shots honey!

Trypanophobia is the extreme and irrational fear of medical procedures involving injections or hypodermic needles. It is occasionally referred to as aichmophobia, belonephobia, or enetophobia, names that are technically incorrect because they simply denote a "fear of pins/needles" and do not refer to the medical aspect of trypanophobia.
