  • It could just be a mild reaction to the injection itself. I would put some warm compresses on it.

  • Yes our arms all hurt for a couple of days after ours and my daughters arm was kind of hard like that too. Hot compresses worked some and some Advil.

  • I'm sure it's fine, just reaction to the shot. It'll probably be gone by Monday.

  • my arm still hurts from the nurse giving me the shot and I moved and the needle came out. SHe tried to act like it was my fault. It still hurts one year later. I never went back to rite aid to get another flu shot. What a letdown....
