My husband and I got the vaccine in January, when our friends had a baby. Our doctor’s office didn’t have us stick around afterward, but we both had stiff arms and a little bit of swelling the day after.

I got my TDaP when I started my current job (I work at a hospital), but I can’t remember if I got any pain/swelling or not. I got jabbed so many times in the first couple months I worked here (TDaP, flu, Hep-A series, TB test, blood draws for MMR and chicken pox titers, etc) I can’t remember which shot was which.

Darling Husband is going to get his TDaP soon. I know he’s way overdue on tetnus, and there’s recently been an outbreak of whooping cough in the southern part of my city, so I told him he needed to get the shot before the baby was born.

I got the TDAP when we first started TTC. I didn’t have any adverse reaction to it. My arm hurt to lay on it for the next day or so but other than that I was fine. Hope you don’t have any reaction to it and can go home soon.

Both my husband and I got vaccinated with the Tdap in 2011. I even made sure to double check with my doctor the other day to be absolutely sure that I was good for delivery in August. My MMR is borderline, but they won’t vaccinate me until after delivery. My OB sees this as not a big deal, more just another shot.

Nope! I thank God every day that  grew up with getting three vaccines in my lifetime.

ugh I just got that about a month ago.  I had a hard lump for a good 7 days and it was tender.  It wasn’t SOOOO bad,  but I would expect some discomfort!

I got the Tdap vaccine two months ago, and I definitely had some side effects from it. Not only was I sore at the injection spot (couldn’t lay on that arm for a week), my whole body basically ached for like 4 days straight.  At first I didn’t put two and two together, but eventually it occurred to me that it could be a side effect.  I looked up side effects and sure enough that was one of them.  It’s weird because I have never had a side effect from a vaccine other than a little soreness at the injection spot.  Hopefully you won’t have the same experience I did!  I am glad that I got it over with though.

@Mrs.KMM:  Health care providers should keep all patients for at least 15 minutes after giving them ANY injectable to ensure that the patient is not going to experience an allergic reaction. To do otherwise is not good practice.

I had no side effects, but my husband said his arm was sore for a week afterward.  but then again, he is a man.  And they whine.

I get a lot of pain with that shot, actually. Like, sore muscle/sore at injection site for almost a week. It’s pretty common for Tdap though!

@KT808:  it’s a side effect of the inactivated toxin, not of immunizations in general. As a scientist, I wouldn’t be proud (or grateful) of only getting 3 immunizations.
