I just received a booster tetanus shot yesterday morning. Tonight, I am running a 101 degree fever. Is that a normal reaction?
As infant, my son had reaction to dpt, so was given only dt. Now 28, he is told he can't have tetanus shot bcause it will contain pertussis. True?
Possibly.: This depends on what his reaction to the DPT was.If it was a mild reaction,further DPT's may not have been given. Recommendations have changed,though,so if it was a mild reaction,a Tdap may be safe for him now.Also, the pertussis portion of the Tdap is different from the pertussis portion of the DPT given to him as an infant.He may want to consider getting an infectious disease specialist consult. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Generally, you need a tetanus shot every 10 years no matter the situation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
