The flu shot protects against influenza, which isn't the same thing as the stomach flu (gastroenteritis): Gastroenteritis is an infection caused by a variety of viruses, including rotaviruses and noroviruses. Although it is often called the stomach flu, gastroenteritis is not caused by influenza viruses. Influenza attacks your respiratory system — your nose, throat and lungs. Signs and symptoms of influenza may include: Coughing, Congestion, Fever, Muscle aches. Gastroenteritis, on the other hand, attacks your intestines, causing signs and symptoms such as: Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Chills, Headache, Body aches.
