Immune Response

Based on responses to insect bites and to strong vaccines, it seems that
when the immune system is being boosted by maintaining a good level of
Vitamin C in serum prior to and during the response, the response is localized
to the immediate vicinity of the attack (bite or needle injection) and a
systemic reaction is prevented.  However, the localized response seems to
almost consistently take about three or four days to complete.  During
this time the localized area may ache, may swell, may turn red and may be
warm.  Is there anything special about this amount of time?
