In brief: NO

A tetanus immunizaiton should at most cause some local pain and swelling.
Bursitis is not a known complicaiton of this common immunizatiion. If you have a bursitis, see your pcp or orthopedist and get it checke out if heat or ice and rest are not helping.

In brief: Shot in muscle

Tetanus shot goes into muscle, not bursa (fluid filled sac around joint).
Can cause sore arm, not bursitis.
