I had a flu vaccine administered in my deltoid Monday night at work. I'm pretty sure the nurse used a subq sized needle....I know it was a very small needle. I didn't question her because she's been a nurse for a few years and I figured she knew what she was doing. However, when the needle penetrated, it didn't hurt at all, but after she pushed the med....OUCH! I also saw some of the med leak out. Now I have a huge bump on my arm, it hasn't gone away. I put ice on it that night but it's not getting better. I'm of average size and don't have much fat on my arm.
Any thoughts? I know, I should have said something about such a small needle, but I'm a new nurse and I figured this experienced nurse knew what she was doing.
