Live vaccine: Flu mist nasal is a live vaccine so your body is exposed to a small dose of the flu. It would be normal to have within the first week to 10 days mild flu like symptoms even if you are healthy and not contagious. Stay hydrated and support yourself with good food and sleep and it should resolve.
