I have been seeing a very interesting PA the last several weeks during my pregnancy. I have had multiple problems with her throughout this time. Today, I asked to receive the whooping cough vaccination - after she first told me wrong information about receiving the shot, and insisting I fill out paperwork about the flu shot rather than the paperwork for the whooping cough shot we were finally on the same page.
The nurse came in to administer the shot and told me it was going to hurt really badly. I hate shots and I turned the other way. I never felt a thing, not even a poke! She said I didn't need a bandaid and sent me on my way. My question is - shouldn't I feel like I got a shot? Everything I've read says the TDaP is one of the most painful shots and I should be sore for several days. Like I said, I feel nothing, can't tell where it was can't see anything... Did I get the right shot!?
