In brief: Sure

Of course.
Any medication or vaccination can cause side effects at any age. Mostly it will be local reaction such as soreness, redness and pain/itching or global such as feeling crummy, fever, etc.

I believe joint aches & pains are listed as much more common in older adolescents & adults.

In brief: Yes

Serious ones, probably not.
Fever, achiness, rashes are all possible, and they may occur several weeks later.
