Whooping cough jab


Had the whooping cough jab yesterday at 28+6. Was told may have an achy arm afterwards, which i did yest but I am now feeling very poorly.

I couldnt sleep last night due to the pain in my arm, aching limbs all over (bit like flu), banging headache etc.

Feel terrible today too - has anyone else had similar side effects?

Been on the NHS website which doesnt seem to state any sif=de effects other than the achy arm.

    call NHS direct. It might be the jab just happened to be given as you were getting ill anyway, but best to be on the safe side.

    Post seems to have disappeared above. I had exactly the same symptoms for about 24hrs. Did u have the flu vaccine at the same time? I was advised to take paracetamol and rest which I did and it went quite quickly. Was horrible at the time tho, hope u feel better v soon. X
