    When tethering from phone to tablet do I need to connect my phone and my tablet to a VPN with using public wifi ?

    Or just the device I am using at the moment ?

    There's no such thing as "way too security minded".

    Your connection to your phone should be nominally secure.
    Me? I prefer to physically tether my phone. This way I keep the thing charged and have access to its storage.

    But, do you want your phone provider seeing your traffic?
    If not, VPN.
