One incredible nurse is going viral after an appreciative grandma posted her quick-thinking tactics in helping her grandson get his shots without so much of a whimper.

Tiffany Shelby Marshall posted the four-minute video of little Dimitri getting his injections which has since been watched over 21 million times on Facebook.

“This was by far the funniest thing I’ve ever seen with this kid,” Tiffany captioned the video. “I almost peed myself.”

While Tiffany pre-empted the tears with a $5 bribe, the nurse – believed to be named Myranda – had a slew of tricks to help keep the tot’s mind off the impending jabs.

First distracting him with questions about what he got for Christmas, Myranda miraculously draws blood without him even noticing.

“I’m going to show you a magic trick, and then we’re going to paint,” she says before pin pricking his finger.

“Let’s paint, in a circle,” she says getting Dimitri to put his blood sample on a card.

“I didn’t cry,” Dimitri boasts proudly.

“For my next trick, you’ve got to give me a hug,” says the nurse. “You’ve got to give me a real big hug.

“I’ve got to see your muscles on this trick.”

Pulling up his shirt to see his muscles, the nurse swiftly delivers a shot – with no tears – and repeats the process on the other side.
