Re: TB/Tetanus
May 26, 2004
The TB test is given on the inside of the forearm. A small amount of the liquid is injected just underneath the skin, forming a little bubble under the skin. The bubble goes down within a few hours as the liquid is absorbed. You then have to go back 48-72 hours later to have the test checked. They will just look at the spot and feel it to see if there is a bump. The needle is very small, which minimizes pain from the needle, and since the injection is just under the skin, there is no muscle pain afterward.

The tetanus shot is just a normal vaccine, generally given in the shoulder. Generally it just causes muscle soreness for a day or two at the injection site.

Just try to relax. Both are very quick and you will be done before you know it.
