Muscle spasms caused by tetanus shot

My son developed muscle spasms located on his arms and on his thigh three days after he received a tetanus shot on his arm.  The spasms are very active.  Are these symptoms adverse side effects?  How long will these side effects last?  Is there any medication to relief my son from these side effects of the shot?

Its pretty common, give it a day or two. If its still going on after that point, Id call your doctor.
