I just got a Fluvirin influenza shot and I am stinging and itching in my arms and face. Is this a reaction and will it go away?

I just got a Fluvirin influenza shot and I am stinging and itching in my arms and face. Is this a reaction and will it go away?

Yes and yes, however: Yes, this is likely an adverse reaction to the vaccine.
