Does anyone know if puppy shots are dangerous to humans?
I feel like such a dork. :P I just gave my pup her 11 week shot and I was so timid about it that I poked my finger with the syringe. I assume I shouldn't worry, but who knows. I'd call the vet, but it's too late. It wasn't a rabies shot, just parvo, distemper, parainfluenza and hepatitis.

1. If you start scratching behind your ear...
WITH YOUR FOOT, get to a trauma center right away. Seriously I would call a poison control center if I was you.

you won't get distemper, this of course means you will remain a liberal. I hear distempter turns you into a conservative almost instantly :) :)
