    getting their booster shots

    My sister had a stomachache for about five years growing up. Coincidentally, they were the first five years of her education. School can be tough for shy kids. Even if your wee one isn't shy, a time will probably come when going to school ranks right up there with getting their booster shots.

    What does the bolded sentence above mean?

    school ranks right up there with getting their booster shots.


    School ranks right up there = school is on the same rank/level (or to phrase it differently:
    school is the equivalent of)

    with getting their booster shots = with getting/receiving an injection

    In other words: school will be as unpopular as getting an injection.


    I am not a teacher.
