Got the gardisil shot 2 days ago and my arm still hurts today...Is this normal?

Usually, yes.: Any vaccine can make your muscles sore in the area -- a sharp pointy object has been stuck into them, and fluid is put in a space where there hadn't been any. Massaging the area, using warm compresses, and doing easy arm exercises helps to work 'kinks' out. Gardasil protects against a virus that causes cancer, so the benefits outweigh any side effects. If area reddens or swells, see your doctor. ...Read more

See your doctor: It is normal to feel a hardening of the skin (lump) for up to several weeks after an injection; however, any tenderness associated with the shot should have already resolved. We need to be concerned about infection at the site or other possible complications. Recommend seeing your doctor to have the area examined. ...Read more

Possible fracture: Sometimes a broken bone (fracture) doesn't show up right away on an xray, so it is still possible that you have a fracture. I would recommend getting it xrayed again. ...Read more

I had dtap vaccine last year and only 3/4 of dose went in. A bit squirted on my arm. Will i still be covered?

Probably: Usually a bit "comes out" after the injection - you are probably covered. You should talk to your doctor (or where you got the vaccine) to see if they agree or if you should have a booster. ...Read more

Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone): If you get the birth control shot within the first seven days after the start of your period, or if you get the shot within five days after miscarriage or an abortion, or within three weeks after giving birth, you are protected from pregnancy immediately. Otherwise, you need to use some form of backup birth control. Sex prior to the shot, if given with the period, should not be an issue. DrG ...Read more

I had my last gardasil vaccine 2 months ago. No complications. Now i have a lump on my arm that hurts to touch and move my arm. Should i be concerned?

I had my last gardasil vaccine 2 months ago. No complications. Now i have a lump on my arm that hurts to touch and move my arm. Should i be concerned?

Infection?: If the lump is exactly at the site of the vaccine injection, maybe it is a delayed infection or other reaction to the shot. This sort of thing is rare but could happen. If the lump is anywhere else, probably it has nothing to do with the vaccine. See a doctor soon if the area continues to enlarge or becomes more tender; if any redness; or if you have fever. ...Read more
