Re: shot

Doesn't your doctor tell you the negative side effects to the shot when you get it? ALL drugs and vaccines have negative side effects, I think we need to be presented this information. Go back and ask your doctor for this information or look up common side effects to this shot on the internet, I hope that helps.

Re: shot

Sometimes there is also a good size lump. It is very common to be sore for several days and actually hurt to move the arm
