A 34-year-old female asked:

What would happen if a vaccine like Tdap was administered subcutaneously instead of intramuscularly?

Local reaction: That vaccine should be given IM, since there is a decreased risk of a more severe local reaction, including pain, redness and a possible sterile abscess. The protection the.vaccine confers and it's effectiveness are most likely the same as if given IM.
