My arm hurt for a few days after getting it. Good thing you got it....there has been a huge increase in the amount of pertussis (Whooping Cough) outbreaks (thanks to the anti-vaccine crowd) and sadly little babies are far more at risk for death from pertussis than healthy adults. A friend of mine had her little baby in ICU a few months ago, got exposed from an adult that hadn't been vaccinated and it went from pertussis to pneumonia. Poor baby took months to recover. My doc had me get the vaccine as soon as they knew we were trying for a baby, they said unvaccinated mothers risk exposing their babies.
