    I am a medical assistant i give shots and bruises mean that the needle hit the muscle meaning it went in too deep, just try to massage the area for him and put a ice pack on it, he will be fine

    That is normal. It doesn't mean the doctor or nurse was bad, it happens sometimes. A bruise is not a side effect. Those would be things like fever or a rash.

    yeah its a side effect of the pediatrician not being to gentle.
