"No": Any one of the 4 different meningitis vaccines (Meningococcal ACWY, Meningococcal B, Haemophilus B, or Pneumococcal) is as painless as the 3 others, and as painless as a flu shot or a tetanus shot.

??????????: All shots hurt some.This one is no worse than any others and most consider it minimal if any discomfort.
