Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself against tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, polio, and their complications. Children are usually given the Tdap-Polio vaccine before starting school. This vaccine is also given to individuals aged 4 or over who need protection against these 4 diseases.
The combined tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough and polio vaccine is safe. Most reactions are harmless and do not last long. Symptoms experienced after vaccination are not necessarily caused by the vaccine.

As with any drug or biological product, an allergic reaction may occur. If a severe allergic reaction occurs, it begins within minutes and the person administering the vaccine will be able to treat it. That is why you are advised to remain at the clinic for at least 15 minutes after the vaccine is administered.
If you have any questions, ask the person administering the vaccine or contact Info-Santé (8-1-1) or your doctor.
