  • It is not normal. It is a reaction and needs to be checked by his Doctor. Good luck!

    I had that happen from a Tetnus shot (along with swelling and redness down my arm). I was seen by my Doctor and told I am allergic to the vaccine.

  • It's an adverse reaction. Make sure you report it to VAERS. It's the law.

    Here is some more info on the flu shot, if you're interested: http://www.nvic.org/Diseases/influenzafacts.htm
