Yes, that is completely normal for the TDaP shot.  Put ice on the swelling and it should go down in a few days.  If it gets worse after a few days, a doctor's visit is in order.

Mine was sore for 2 weeks.  Worse at the beginning,  like I could barely lift my arm,  and there was a lump that felt like half a golf ball in my arm.  It passed,  though. Eventually.
