What would happen if the Tdap vaccine was accidentally given in a blood vessel? Had shot two days ago - would I be sick by now?
If anything did: It is hard to conceive of where in the shoulder you could find a blood vessel large enough to thread with a needle & push in the shot. They are just not there to allow it. If you were allergic to any component of the vaccine, the bad ones start to show up within the hour. ...Read more
What if a blood vessel was hit when getting injected with Tdap vaccine? Would I be sick by now if I had gotten the vaccine in a vein??
Tdap injection: The deltoid muscle is the site of injection for Tdap and most other vaccines in adults. That area is chosen because there are no major veins or arteries in the vicinity. It should have been relatively obvious to the person injecting the shot if they hit a vein or not - so I really doubt this happened. Vaccines may make you feel mildly unwell -because they're stimulating your immune system to fight ...Read more

At 2:30pm today, I got a TDAP vaccine that was required for work. It is now 6:30pm. I am worried about possible allergic reactions. If I haven't had a reaction yet, is it safe to say that I won't have a reaction at all?
Paranoia: The rare IgE reactions that cause difficulty breathing/potential for death will be apparent within 30 min most, with an an exceedingly few others that might show up later.

I got a Tdap vaccine 8 days ago. My arm still really hurts. I'm a 35 year old female. Is this normal?
I just got a TDAP vaccine on 1/12. Since then, my arm has been killing me and today, 1/14, I have a slight fever of 99.2. Is this a normal reaction?

No: Our instincts suggest your immune system may react more vigorously and give you a more tender arm but recent studies suggest that is not the case. Thus, while not needed, the upshot is getting two doses of tdap is not harmful not even more painful--just unnecessary. ...Read more

I recently got the Tdap vaccine and would like to know if that vaccine would protect my five month old daughter because I am breastfeeding?
Yes and no: Your TdaP makes sure you will not carry pertussis from your outside life to the baby, but the antibodies you pass have minimal benefit for these conditions. The antibodies in breast milk are secretory IGA that helps some by preventing germs from adhering to the digestive tract. Only the babies shots will help develop strong enough protection to avoid the illnesses prevented by the vaccine. ...Read more
