Call your doctor: If it continues, it will need to be seen. This may be a reaction to the vaccine. Even if it resolves, it's a good idea to call the office where you received the shot. This would be considered an "adverse event". The cdc collects data on these events to monitor vaccine safety, and calculate the risks of side effects.
