Hi.Welcome to just answer.I am caring doc.I can help you today.
I am reviewing your question please give me some time!
Respected customer,there is nothing to worry about, sore arm is a very common side effect of the flu shot. It typically goes away after a few days. In the meantime, you can use OTC pain medications like tylenol as needed or an ice pack to ease pain and swelling at the injection site.
I hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any questions please.
I would be glad to help you further.
Thanks a lot for visiting Justanswer:)
