Child having red spots near injection site. Can it be reaction to injection?

My 1 yr old got his 12 month shots 9 days ago. Yesterday after waking up from his nap he had a red spot on his thigh just below the injection site. It was kind of like a welt. This morning when he woke up he had a 2nd welt. Can this be a late reaction to his shots or should I be worried? He is not running a fever but seems more tired.
