Vaccination against the cooties. Can be administered by any schoolboy who thinks he knows how.

I've seen and had many variations of the cooties shot. Most involve some sort of mild pinch (likely imitating the prick of a needle) and some cootie shots even involve spit (probably imitating the antibiotic rub prior to a vaccination).

The cootie shot is vital before (or quickly after) being touched by a girl or spending any undue amount of time with a girl in the presence of other boys during the primary grades.
