What the Expert Says:

Sorry to hear that.  Technically, no there is no danger except for tetanus (dpt) should not exceed five in ten years, but even that can be debated.  The age of your child also matters.  This type of immunization issue is less a problem at 15 years old than at 5 years old.  Speak with your doctor or the medical home where it happened so she is aware and can appropriately counsel you.

Parents should become advocates for their children's health.  Please check out the site Vaccination Liberation, it relays all the side effects, ingrediants that create these side effects and how to notice if you still decide your child should take these vaccines.  Vaccines have many different forms of ingrediants that range from monkey kidney cells, aborted fetal cells, formalydehyde and others.  So being informed is being smart.  Be aware of it all.  The sites listed below are very informative and perhaps the only sites that give up the good, the bad and the ugly about health and those shots.
