It has been nearly 3 weeks since I got my 3rd Hepatitis B vaccine and my arm still hurts near the injection site. Is this normal or should I go back to the health center and have it looked at?

Hi michaelapettersen,

This article says that the most common side effect of the hepatitis vaccine is soreness at the injection site. If you are worried, you might try calling your doctor to see if lingering soreness after 3 weeks is a normal, or if they would like for you to go in.

Best wishes,
Atti
