I am getting a physical today and I have to get a tdap vaccine I was wondering how to make it hurt less?

Take some ibuprofen before and relax when you are getting your shot. If you are tense and stiff it will hurt more because it is an intramuscular injection. It helps to take a deep breath in and then as you slowly breath out have it given. Also make sure to move your arm throughout the day to keep it lose. I am a nurse.

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.
