What are the side effects of the flu shot?

Most people who receive the flu shot do not experience problems from it. Mild side effects that may occur from the flu shot are: Soreness, redness, or mild swelling where the shot was given. Some people also experience low grade fever, body aches and/or nausea.

Life-threatening allergic reactions to vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it is usually within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot is given.
