Yes you can set up an appointment for your TDaP. Make sure you say TDaP as DTaP is for children.

Being a nurse, I have to get one every 6 years.

I got Tdap about 3 years ago. I started working at a hospital, so it was required. (Along with tetnus, flu, and voluntary Hep-A. And I had to have my vaccination records and/or get titered for Hep-B, MMR, chickenpox.)

I would think they would have the vaccine on-hand, but no harm in calling to double-check.

I got one in the summer. The correct term is TDaP, though. It wasn’t that painful, but my doctor makes you stay for about 20 minutes in case you feel faint. I thought it was pretty funny.

Also, mention that you’re coming in for the vaccine. That way they’re prepared.
