Thanks for your query.
There is pain at vaccination site which can be there foe 24 hours.
I suggest you to apply cold compresses over vaccination site and take ibuprofen 2 to 3 times a day.
If symptoms persist get yourself evaluated by doctor to rule out any abscess formation.

Wishing you good health.
God bless..
