  •  I got one last week too. (6+ / 0-)

    The nurse mentioned to me that my tetanus shot (since I hadn't had one in over 10 years) also contained a pertussis vaccine.  Then we talked about the irresponsible parents who don't vaccinate their kids.  I got my kids vaccinated for everything possible, including HPV (on the advice of my Ob-Gyn and their pediatrician). I know lots of parents who were reluctant about the HPV vaccine.  I wonder how they will feel if & when their girls end up with cervical cancer, and they realize they could have prevented it?

    •  Did you make sure to avoid advil, tylenol, and (0+ / 0-)

      other OTC pain relievers for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after getting the shot?  Because if not then it might not work as "Cycloozygenase-1 Orchestrates Germinal Center Formation and Antibody Class-Switch via Regulation of IL-17" according to The Journal of Immunology and all those drugs are COX-1 inhibitors.
