What is a tdap shot?

Also known as the DPT vaccination, The TDaP shot stands for the Tetanus (which causes lockjaw), Diphtheria (which is not very common), and Accelular Pertusis (aka whooping cough). This shot is 3 vaccines in a single vaccination. The shot itself does not hurt very much. But, afterwards your arm may feel tense and sore because, this shot includes the Tetanus: these side effects should subside after 1-3 days. I would definitely recommend getting this shot! Actually, most schools are now requiring students to get it other wise they will be banned from school. This shot is also not just for students it is recommended for people of all ages.
