Not good: The hallmark of anaphylactic shock is low blood pressure which can make you feel faint or cause you to pass out. It is often accompanied by rash,tightness in the throat and difficulty breathing.

Dr. Schwarzman is correct! If you have lip or tongue swelling that is worrying too. Obviously, in cases of chest tightness, throat closing, dizziness, call 911.

No risk, no worry: Flu shots almost never cause anaphylaxis. If it were to happen, it would be within 30 minutes of the shot. Don't worry about it.
