A 25-year-old male asked:
is it normal for a deltoid vaccination to bleed? does it means it hit a vessel? my niece was given vaccine on deltoid, and it bled, but not profusely.

Yes, It is normal: Some times, as you break the skin, the needle will rupture some capillaries and bleed a little. So you are right it did hit a vessel but normally not one of significant size to be a problem.
