      Basta con copiar la linea tantas veces como se quiera nombrando la hoja que debe ser ocultada.

      Private Sub CheckBox1_Click()
      On Error Resume Next
      ThisWorkbook.Sheets("DB2018").Visible = CheckBox1.Value
      ThisWorkbook.Sheets("V2018").Visible = CheckBox1.Value
      ThisWorkbook.Sheets("R2018").Visible = CheckBox1.Value
      End Sub
