I just got a Fluvirin influenza shot and I am stinging and itching in my arms and face. Is this a reaction and will it go away?
Yes and yes, however: Yes, this is likely an adverse reaction to the vaccine.

Based on this reaction I advise you to not get flu shots in the future, esp. since they have minimal benefits. See http://tinyurl.com/py6xtc8 & http://tinyurl.com/qcbvvoa ...Read more

Ok so I have the influenza B virus had flu shot so has my 5 year old so if she did contract it would symptoms be milder?
MAYBE: Every year a number of flu strains circle the globe and various sites keep track and report their activity. Vaccine makers pick 3-4 strains in early spring to put in the fall shot, based on those with the most activity.Too many strains would weaken the individual strength against each strain.With luck, the vaccine will boost general flu immunity enough to make it mild for those who get it anyway ...Read more

Aprox 80% effective: First the flu shot takes 3 weeks to build full immunity so next year take it late october this way when the season starts ( nov in the ne) you are ready.
