I thought this would be of interested to the vaxers.

[r]eactions were much more common for DTaP and the risk was higher if the shots were given in the arm rather than the thigh. Among children aged 12 to 35 months the risk of a reaction was 88 percent higher when the shot was given in the arm. Among those aged 3 to 6 years the risk was 41 percent higher.

What about effectiveness? Is that still the same whether the vax is administered in the thigh or arm?
