Blemish on toddlers arm from jab

Hi, I wonder if anyone can advise if their baby/toddler has had the same thing?

My 15 month old had the menb injection in her arm. There was a small lump at injection site for 6 weeks which eventually went :-)

The doctor said that a blood vessel was nicked on administering the injection which caused a nasty bruise. Happy to say the bruise has faded now (took 2 months!), but she has been left with a little red/pink mark on her arm. This seems to come and go on room temperature!

Has anyone else experienced marks/blemishes from injections, how long did it take to fade?

Many thanks x
