Brief Answer:
need observation + warm compresses..

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It is not uncommon to find pain and soreness after intramuscular injection. It usually settles down. I will suggest you try warm compresses on the affected region. That should ease discomfort.

You should closely observe symptoms. If at any point, soreness or pain worsens, it should be evaluated by your doctor.
