What old vaccine left a round scar?

The CDC reports that it’s possible that some children may have a scar after a previous shot. This scar can be on the arm, the face, the buttocks, or anywhere on the body.

There isn’t a set scar size, location, or age cutoff for when a previous shot is considered a scar. It’s impossible to predict how long a scar will last.

This scar can be a cosmetic problem. It can also be a medical problem.

A scar in the arm or face can be a sign of an infection that needs treatment.

A scar on the buttocks may be a sign of a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

If you’re concerned about any new or old scars, talk with a doctor.
