What a pain in the neck! In, nearly, 19 years at my job I have never filed an injury claim, until Monday. I got a small cut on my finger but because of the nature of my job, my hands were covered with gasoline, rusty water and god knows what else and since my last tetanus shot was over 10 years ago, I thought I should report it. The cut wasn’t large but it was deep and it bleed really good at first. So I filled out the paperwork and then spent an hour on the phone.
Long story short…Later that day I got my tetanus shot, which included a pertussis booster (which I am sensitive too) and spent the next 2 days with a fever.
