Can a flu vaccine make me sick?

Posted: Updated:

You can't get the flu from the flu vaccine because it's made from a killed or weakened virus. But if you get a shot, you may notice mild swelling, redness, or soreness where the vaccine was given. 

Some people develop fever and aches or mild symptoms such as a vaccine.  These problems usaully last 1 or 2 days and go away on their own.

Very rarely, the vaccine can cause an allergic reaction.  If you develop a high fever, difficulty breathing, a feeling as if your heart is racing, or dizziness, call 911.  Tell the paramedics that you had a flu vaccine and when you got it.
