Shoulder pain after tetanus vaccine

(25 yr old Male 140 lbs.) I had a tetanus vaccine injected into my left shoulder due to a boxers fracture on my right hand nine days ago and it still hurts. I find it hard to lift more than five lbs. My left hand is all that I have at the moment. My question is... Is it normal for my shoulder to be in this much pain nine days after having the vaccine?

I am required to have my tetanus up to date and I can tell you, it hurts every single time!  However, I find it usually fades after a day or two.  At 9 days I might talk to your Dr.
