Vaccine needle into hand..any suggestions.

My daughter was trying to give a calf a shot of Draxxon and the calf moved and she stabbed herself. I don't know if she got any into her hand or not..I wasn't there. She says her thumb muscle is sore and has a little bump where the needle went in.  She did let it bleed out some and washed her hands good.  How do you know if you need to see a doctor when this happens?  I worked in a factory several years back and injected my hand with air!  My hand felt like fish eggs for a couple days and it was scary.

Re: Vaccine needle into hand..any suggestions.

Since it`s your daughter, I`d play it safe and ask a doctor. Infections aren`t anything to mess with these days. Best of Luck.
