Flu: The vaccine may only be 65% effective which means you can still get the flu despite taking the vaccine. The infection usually runs its course in 5-10 days. Worrisome signs are continuing or worsening fever sweats and chills, increasing cough producing discolored sputum, shortness of breath, chest pain on inspiration. Even without complications, fatigue after the flow can last weeks.
