The pain associated with such injections is a source of distress for children, their parents and those administering the injections. If not addressed, this pain can lead to preprocedural anxiety in the future, fear of needles and non adherence with vaccination schedules. The aim of the study is to compare the effectiveness of rapid injection technique versus traditional injection technique to reduce pain in children receiving DPT vaccine in selected hospitals of Punjab. A quantitative research approach, Quasi experimental research in which post test only control group design without randomization was used for the present study. Convenience sampling technique was used to select 120 children receiving DPT vaccination in Guru Gobind Singh Medical College and Hospital, Faridkot and Civil Hospital, Bathinda. The tool used had two sections, sociodemographic variables and FLACC pain scale. The study results revealed that there is statistically significant difference (unpaired t test 17.9) in the mean pain score in experimental group (3.1±0.92) and control group (3.8±1.2) at 0.05 level of significance. The results also depict that there is statistically significant difference in the level of pain in experimental and control group as calculated by chi square test (6.22) at 0.05 level of significance. This study concluded that there is statistically significant difference in the post interventional level of pain between control and experimental group at the 0.05 level of significance.
