  • stiffness!

    even though it'll probably hurt, keep the arm (or leg) moving!

    I went to sleep after it and my arm was basically frozen in place when I woke up!

  • For children: a slight fever may occur, along with aches, fussiness, temporary loss of appetite, localized swelling around injection site, sleepiness.

    For adults: usually just local reactions; swelling, feeling stiff or generalized body aches, tiredness, sometimes headaches.
