BOTH OF THE INCIDENTS CAN GIVE THESE REACTIONS
THESE ARE LOCAL AND SUBSIDE AFTER SOME TIME OR FEW HOURS
IF NO MAJOR REACTIONS IT IS OKAY

1. About one out of every two ADULTS experience:swelling,redness and fever; all are mild side effects of the said vaccine.
2. hypersensitivity can occur any time even despite having no adverse reaction before, bee sting/venom contain formic acid which might have interacted with vaccine resulting in features of allergic reaction plus Interaction of vaccine and venom, [although vaccine is made using dead bacteria and the dead germs cannot make you sick]. Consult or have an appointment with your Specialist regarding the same.
