Patient :I had a tetanus vaccine on Thursday. Since then, there has been redness and pain at the injection site (which I know is normal) plus I have had fever off and on (only a 3 degrees above my normal) as well as pins and needle feeling in my hands, headache, nausea and pain in joints (shoulders, elbow, hands) and muscles (from jaw to upper back). Are these normal?
