Maybe: There are different types if flu vaccine. The ones given with needles. ( shots ) are made of inactivated flu peices. These cannot produce disease therefore could not get you sick. Flumist is a nasal spray vaccine that contains live virus capable of spreading and causing you (or others) to rarely get sick as well.
