Hives are not presenting as blisters which occur in dyshidrotic eczema.

Yes, allergic reaction from the vaccine will likely present as hives.

In dyshydrotic eczema fluid filled,very itchy blisters appear on the palms & soles. On the other hand, hives only remain in place for a day but appear and reappear in scattered distribution. They can resemble insect bites but can be much larger. They are also very itchy. I tend to believe you're experiencing hives. A dermatologist would be best to evaluate, advise and treat you.
