Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin: Arm soreness after a vaccination can be relieved by taking tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for a couple of days. Some people feel better by putting a cold pack on the vaccine site. If soreness is more than mild, or if there is more than slight firmness at the site, one should see a primary care doctor to evaluate for infection at the shot site, which would need to be treated with antibiotics.
