Had to get a tetanus shot at Hospital Emergency this afternoon. I was injected with Adacel which realized later at home was for tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis instead.I was warned my arm would have some pain afterward for couple days but holy crap never experienced something like this....swollen, very weak and unbelievable pain and tenderness in whole arm few hours later. Had a tetanus shot few years ago and...nothing...what's in this stuff? How bad will my arm feel tomorrow? Yikes
