DD had her 12 week jabs approx a month ago (due to have next lot next week).
Noticed today that she has a very hard lump under the skin on her leg just here the men c vaccine was injected. It's not noticeable unless you feel and slightly press her leg and it doesn't seem to hurt her. It's about the size of a pea.

Any ideas?

Dc2 had the same, the lumps were quite hard and stuck around for ages. I was worried at first but read in the info leaflet that it's normal.

Totally normal, DS had this too. www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/448789/8584-what-to-expect-after-vaccination-2015-2P-A5-02-web.pdf

My GP told me his daughter still has a lump at 14!! My kids had them for ages also. Some for years.
I think it's just scar tissue.
