Brief Answer:
may not cause adverse effects

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Usually in adults repeat dose of tdap vaccine is recommended after 10 years.
As per the literature available no adverse reactions reported because of repeated usage within short period.
So no need to worry.
If he develops any symptoms like fever, headache, itching etc, better to consult physician once.
