Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. There is no correltaion between tetanus shot, swollen left clavicle and strep throat. Tetanus shot is not related to your symptoms. The swelling along the clavicle may also be due to swelling of lymph nodes. For ascertaining the real cause you need to get it examined. So kindly see your doctor to find out the real cause. Wish you good health.

Hi Francisca ,
welcome to the health care mwgic forum,there is no such relation between the parts u mentioned ,thing is that the clavicle swelling might be due to some injury i suppose,a bad bruise but since you are on antibiotic it will take care of the swelling additionally take combiflam which will reduse the pain.
get well soon !
