Can you be around infants immediately after the DTaP immunization?

I received the DTaP immunization yesterday by my family doctor and she never said a word about waiting so many hours to be near my infant granddaughter (which is the reason I had the immunization). A good friend said it was a "live" vaccine and since the baby hasn't had the shot yet, I shouldn't have been in contact with her for so many hours. Now I'm freaking out because the doctor's office is closed for the weekend. The last thing I want to do is harm my granddaughter.

DTaP is not a live vaccination. You are fine to be around baby.
