No: We give them closer together in infants. It won't hurt you but may provide your immune protection a way to catch up if yours was week.

No worries: A person should get higher antibody levels after the second shot than after the first shot. Depending on how many DTP shots she received in her lifetime, and on when the previous shots were given, she may or may not have needed the second recent shot (this question is unclear as to whether one or both of the recent shots were intentional). No worries. Two shots usually means better protection.
