In brief: Local reaction

Reactions at the site of injection occur with some frequency with almost any vaccine.
If this continues to enlarge, be red and tender or if you have any symptoms such as fever or chills, see a doctor asap.

What kind of symptoms? Swollen arm? If so, cool compresses for 20-30 minute intervals will take the swelling down in a day or two?
