Covid vaccine
Hi Doc, I received my second shot end of August but the area where they injected me is still a bit sore if I touch it? Is that normal ? Thank you

Hi there
It shouldn't really be sore anymore - but hopefully it will completely disappear in time. As long as it is not becoming more painful, or more red, or more swollen, it should get better. Good luck and I hope that you feel better soon.
