I needed my Td - TETANUS, DIPHTHERIA shots. Went to my primary physician and i was informed that its the new one. Its now Tdap- TETANUS, DIPHTHERIA, PERTUSSIS. The Tdap shot can protect you from this 3 diseases :
  • Tetanus (lockjaw) - causes painful tightening of the muscles. Tetanus leads up to death in up to 2/10 ratio.
  • Diphtheria - causes a thick covering in the back of the throat. Can lead to breathing problems, paralysis, heart failure and even death.
  • Pertussis (whooping cough) - causes severe coughing spells, vomiting, and disturbed sleep. Can lead to weight loss, incontinence, rib fractures and passing out from violent coughing, pneumonia.
I'm sure glad i got mine done, wouldn't want to get those diseases. It sure was easy to get one but was hard on my body . The shot didn't hurt at all,not at all but once the medication was inside of me that's when it started to bother me. This is are just common effects of the shot.

  • Pain
  • Redness or swelling
  • Mild fever of at least 100.4
  • Headaches
  • Tiredness
  • Nausea, Vomiting,diarrhea, stomach ache
  • chills, body aches, sore joints, rash and swollen lymph glands.
