Hi, I just had a yellow fever vaccine at a city health clinic for a trip coming up. While it was being injected a little bit leaked down my arm. Is this a problem at all? I would have asked the dr. but there was a language barrier and it was a very busy free clinic. Thanks so much.

Thanks for writing in.
Yellow fever vaccination dose is .5 ml so "a little" spillage may mean a lot of the vaccination not injected.
It would be prudent to discuss this with the attending physician at the clinic.
