    I had mine a few months ago, I was a bit panicky as I hate needles and I got the combined Pertussis, Dip and Tetanus. It didn't even leave a mark, or a lump, not even red, no pain or swelling and I felt fine. My DH gets it every 5 years for work, his arm hurts when he gets his done.

    Any stories are appreciated.

    No, it lasts 10 years. But there has been some issues with efficacy ie. ppl who are vaccinated still getting whooping cough.

    I had mine done this week (31 weeks and in UK where they recommend in third trimester) only sore around the injection site--which is little annoying when you need to sleep on that side. I actually had it 3 1/2 years ago as well since I work with young babies. They felt I should still have it now as the UK has had a bit of a break out.

    No need for another soon! General populous need them every 5-10 years. pregnancy related women should have them every 5 years.
    In america the CDC recommends them for every pregnancy regardless of interval but Australian guidelines are 5 yearly.

    That's why your arm hurt so much... It's not the pertussis (whooping cough) that does it though, it's the tetanus. Doesn't come on it's own unfortunately.... Won't do you any harm though, just quite literally a pain in the arm.

    I thought it hurt a little too much compared to last time!

    Thanks ladies. Apparently DP reacts to the tetanus shot. Dragged her to the GP on Monday to have it done, stung going in (like most needles) but she managed to sleep on it that night and it wasn't swollen yesterday. I have found with needles if they are something I react to I get the nurse to do them deeper, they tend to react less that way. My GP got them to do that the other day so I think that's why the reaction wasn't so bad.

    Do kids need to get it? I'm 35 weeks and wonder if my nephews 12 & 7 years old need to have it or do they get it with their children vaccinations?

    They should be covered from their childhood vaccinations.
