Re: tetnus shot

Sometimes people do experience soreness and some even have a lump at the site of an injection. It can occur with a tetanus shot or other vaccination as well. The lump and soreness would be where you got the shot. Both should go away in a few days. It sounds like the tetanus (Tdap) shot was administered high on your upper left arm if thats where the pain and lump are.
