Hep B Vaccine
Nov 27, 2005

I am a 44 year old, female, nursing student. I just finished my series of hep b shots. After my second shot, I began having discomfort and pain in my right side. It subsided for about a month. I had my third and last shot of the series yesterday. I am experiencing even more discomfort in my right side today. Is this a common side affect? Should I be concerned?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I wouldn't tie your right sided pain to receipt of vaccine. I would see your physician to discuss.
