Awful as it may be to accept, there is some side effect exposure to all 
interventional procedures and vaccines are just one.  The nearly 100% 
mortality rate of a tetnus infection would probably result in no-one refusing 
treatment.  Myself, I have had a sore arm for a few weeks from a tetnus 
vaccination.  Most have no noticeable response.  Your parents were probably 
terrified wondering who did the right thing.  Being a parent, it would have 
been mighty uncomfortable for me.   Amongst the many childhood immunizations 
we accept are case histories of serious side effect reactions and deaths.  It 
boils down to the life isn't fair concept.  Immunization therapy is one of 
the medical wonders of our lifetime.
