If you have serious allergic reaction to the vaccine, call 9-1-1 immediately. 

If you have unusual weakness, tingling/numbness of the hands/feet, easy bleeding/bruising, swollen glands, tell your doctor right away.

Some people had fever, muscle pain, joint pain, stiffness in the injection site, being tired, the side effects can last for 7 days, less or more. If you feel the symptoms hard to take, call your doctor. 

What is your symptom? is it serious? For slight symptoms, such as flu-like symptom, no need to treat. If you feel very bad, you should go to hospital.
I have a red circle on my arm at the injection site. It is also itchy.
Hi. It is a very common local side effect. It often goes away within a week. You can use antihistamines (such as cetirizine) to relieve the itchiness.
After the pneumovax 23 vaccine I lost the use of right arm in which the vaccine was administered.   I was in a lot of pain, couldn't move my arm at all, couldn't sleep, it was very painful and swollen and I had to go to Urgent Care and they gave me prednisone to reduce the swelling.   I couldn't drive, reach the ignition, couldn't dress or do anything with that arm.   This lasted close to 4 days, very frightening; I can use it now but still have twinges in the upper arm.   Never experienced anything like this before.   I will never ever have this vaccination again.
I had a similar reaction, redness and pain in my arm and then terrible pain in both hip joints (which are total hip replacements) that lasted a month.  Hope I never need another booster.
It is just a side effect of the vaccine. Although the symptoms are very obvious, it is generally considered not to be severe side effects of vaccines. You can still get a booster, if necessary.
Is this Alyssa or Jess
I feel like I have a pneumonia.
If you think you have symptoms of pneumonia, don't wait for the disease to get even worse before you seek care. Call your doctor. And see your doctor right away if you have difficulty breathing, develop a bluish color in your lips and fingertips, have chest pain, a high fever, or a cough with mucus that is severe or is getting worse.
