side effects of tetanus vaccination?
Should I be experiencing a raised, red and very sore area where vaccine was administered? I have also experienced very intense headaches and a very sore neck approx 1 -3 days after injections. Is this a "normal" side effect or reaction?

Vuyo, it’s not a normal reaction, but it might be due to the injection or due to an allergy to something in the injection. The best would be to see your doctor if it hasn’t started clearing up by the time you get this reply. Good luck.
