I had a flu shot at my drug store a week or two ago. It hurt when I got it, and now my arm muscle is really sore. Do I need to worry about this? There does not appear to be any inflamation, just sore upper arm muscle.

I've had a site that was still sore after a month. Unfortunately a nerve was a bit cranky about the shot and let me know it. It all depends on where the needle lands. If its not swollen and not red, I'd give it a month before talking to a doctor.
