Aching Muscles after Vaccination

Question by Guest | 2016-10-02 at 15:37

Yesterday, I was at the doctor for brushing up my vaccinations. When vaccinating, I got the syringe into my arm. Directly after the stitch, I had no complications.

However, since I stood up today, I have something like a muscle soreness feeling directly at respectively around the location I got the injection. What can that be? I have specially avoided doing sports, I do not think that this is real muscles stiffness. Where are those stiff and sore muscles coming from?

No need to worry, this is the normal immune system response to the vaccine. This reaction shows you that your immune system is working and building up a protection.

After the vaccination, your immune system becomes active and sends immune cells to the location the vaccine was injected. Some vaccines even contain so-called adjuvants (excipients) that are making these reactions intentionally heavier.

All of this can lead to pain and this muscle ache feeling at the injection location. However, this is not a reason for any con son. At least after 1-3 days everything should be over again.
