Sepsis risk?

Posted , 1 user is following.

ve no idea who to ask or what or do so thought id write here in hope. i had a flu vaccination today. 3 weeks ago i had reconstructive breast surgery. i havent washed top of my arms since as i have t been well and was so worried about catching infection wanted to wait and keep dressings dry. when i was given injection nurse didnt wipe my arm before injecting. im terrified of all the bacteria my skin will have had on it and it will cause sepsis. if anyone can offer any thoughts i would be very grateful.
