Lymph nodes: Do you have any other lymph nodes? If so it could be the cold. Check for other lymph nodes.

If you have persistent fevers or chills you may need an antibiotic. See your doctor in that case. You should have a family doctor to do your check ups anyway at 30 yrs old. ...Read more

Not for most: when you have what you describe it is usually because you have a sensitivity to something in the vaccine. I would check if the form of the vaccine you took had Latex and or preservative in it. Allergy to eggs could cause this. If just mild inflammation and sore muscle is not unusual. If not allergic to Aleve (naproxen) or the like take this plus cold compresses at the site. Infection is unlikely but possible ...Read more
