Write-up: She complained that the vaccine burned at the time it was given. I then noticed that it was given in the subcutaneous fatty tissue of her arm and not the deltoid muscle. Within 2 hours she was complaining that her arm hurt. The next morning (Sat) she said her arm was very painful and had a small red spot were the vaccine was given. By that evening she had a half dollar sized red area and was given Benadryl. The next day (Sun) the red area continued spreading, swelling, and was hot to the touch. The area was from her elbow and up about 6 inches. She was given more Benadryl. By that evening it had spread about 2 more inches upward and an inch more below her elbow. Her primary MD was notified and advised us to go to the ER. The ER diagnosed her with cellulitis and prescribed Keflex 4X/day Sunday around 8:00 PM. Monday the area continued spreading and had wrapped around to the back side of her arm. We elevated, iced it, and gave her more Benadryl. This morning it was about the same or maybe a little less red.
