Whooping Cough Vaccine

Had my whooping cough vaccine on Wednesday and my arm has been really sore since got a red rash and it feels very tender and is a little difficult to move especially if I need to stretch - is this normal?

I think this can be a side effect but if your worried then call your GP. Mine wasn’t red but sooo sore I couldn’t lift it or lie on it for days xx

Cold compress and paracetamol should help to deduce the swelling, redness and soreness. If it is any worse contact your Gp. I hope this helps xx

I’m not allowed to have the whooping cough vaccination because when I was a child I had seizures because of the whooping cough injection on and off for almost 2 years xxx

Hi, mine didn’t go red but it was so sore for ages, it hurt to move my arm. As someone else said, check with your GP if your worried. Hope it clears up soon x
