Final Thoughts

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a vaccine.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any problems after receiving Adacel or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be an Adacel side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
