rattlesnake vaccine

My Min Pin has had a pretty bad reaction to the rattlesnake vaccine. He has developed a LARGE bump on his neck/shoulder where the vaccine was given. The injection was given 10 days ago. The dog scratched the area and made a hole for the fluid to drain. I lightly pressed around the area to get the rest of the fluid out. It was mostly clear with maybe 1/3 blood content. I couldn't get in to see the vet today, but will see him tomorrow. It also appears he has loss of tissue in the injection site.
Is there anything I can do to help with this situation until I see the Vet?
I really think you should not consider this vaccine safe for some dogs. My dog is approx. 12 lbs., 5 years old, and in excellent health.

Warm, wet compresses may help bring blood into the area, which would in turn carry to toxins away. The warmth may also be soothing and help make him more comfortable.
