In brief: Depends on source

Animal antitetanus serum can cause a multitude of symtoms, called serum sickness.
There may include, fever, joint pains, enlarged lymphnodes, kidney damage, rash, weakness, muscle pains etc. Serum from human source usually does not have adverse effects, other than the uncommon complications of blood product transfusion.
