If you search in the dictionary for the word "squeamish" you will find out that among other things, in the modern vernacular, it means to bum one out.
I have a problem with the media showing needles being put into arms. I know that is sort of sissified, but being in my 80-something year, I have seen my share of blood and viscera. So that really isn't the problem.
I suppose you could say I am bummed out by it.
I also believe our friends in the media could get their point across without showing penetration of needles, however slight.
