Clean you stylus as you normally would, otherwise this shouldn't be a problem.

Everybody's done it.No big deal.You even have less wear because though it followed lead out groove it didn't get rough edges of music groove.It would have been trouble for you if full LP was replayed over and over since pounds per square inch are incredible considering weight and heat generated on such a small point.But not a problem here.
I spoke to long time VPI tech who told me that after using a Vacuum machine (even when new first out of sleeve) since there are chemicals you don' wan (release compounds from stamper) that giving it a scrub (he gave me alcohol based home brew recipe that works great.Follow up with plain watter and then zap it with a Milty Zerostat to remove built up static that will attract dust))that one should invest in atrociously expensive LAST preservative (he had no finacial interest in suggesting it). He said he had folks come up to him and play their Lp's at shows and he ask how many plays it had gotten.They'd replay "Hundreds" whereas he would have guessed half a dozen maybe a dozen.It s one "tweak" that is essential!!!I wouldn't be without it.
P.S. if you don't have ching for VPI 16.5 machine get Alsop Orbitrac with it's replacement pads.Discwasher brush just sloshes dust arround and does not lift it from LP.
