Mild skin allergy like redness, itching and mild fever is a common side- effect of any vaccination. However, hot, big white lump with red skin around may be a "developing Abscess". are you running fever also? I will advise to show this to a general surgeon to rule out abscess and if confirmed it will require an incision and drainage.
