There are no contraindications. A transient swelling which usually regresses within 4 days may appear at the injection site. In rare occasions swelling can reach a diameter up to 15-20 cm, with duration up to 2-3 weeks, that may require symptomatic treatment. Pain, local hyperthermia and muscle stiffness can occur in rare cases. In very rare occasions abscessation may be observed. A slight increase in temperature (max. 1.5 °C) may occur for 1 day, exceptionally 2 days. In exceptional circumstances, apathy and reduced appetite may be observed the day after vaccination. In exceptional circumstances a hypersensitivity reaction may occur, which may require appropriate symptomatic treatment.
