    Your symptoms are not a common side effect.

    Hey Laura. You aren't helping the opinion of nurses. They flu shot contains bits of the virus in a killed state. THe flu shot cannot and does not give you the flu. The tiny bits of the virus causes your body to make antibodies against the strains that are in the shot. The majority of people who have side affects have them because they are told there might be side affects. Its a form of the placebo affect. If you tell someone they might get sick, a certain percentage will. If you are indeed a nurse, you need to do more research and more listening to the professionals.
