Is this Normal?

My son got his shots on tuesday,  and where the nurse poked him he has a hard lump, and it is still red. Also when I touch it he jerks away so i'm assuming it is sore. I called his pedi's office and they said it is normal. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not sure if it's a coincidence but ever since he got his shots he has been a strict momma's boy. And he'll wake up screaming and he won't take his bottle of water but if it's milk he will. I'm not sure whats going on any help would be appreciated =] thanks!
