Question: 

I don’t remember if I have gotten a Tdap vaccine at the age of 10 or over. Is it fine for me to get the shot anyways at my school? (Grade 9)

Answer: 

Getting an extra dose of vaccine when an immunization history is unknown is not harmful. It is better to ensure protection by getting the vaccine than risk leaving yourself unprotected.
