Vomiting After Flu Vaccine
Not uncommon: Fever is a sometimes unpleasant side effect of the flu shot (and most vaccines). Good news is your body's responding appropriately and your immune system is working. If the fever lasts more than 24 hrs or your having other side effects, it doesn't hurt to let your doc know. Otherwise, it'll go away on its own. Best of luck! ...Read more
Also known as influenza vaccines, flu shots are given out once a year to protect against the flu. The flu shot stimulates the immune system to build antibodies to three or four strains of flu viruses in the hopes that it will offer protection from the current strains present in the community.

Sneezing, sinus congestion, chills, sweats, diarrhea, nausea. Vomiting every 1-2 hours. I got my flu shot this year.
Explanation : These all symptoms most likely related to other viral infection, not flu. To help yourself you need to drink fluids by small amount but very often to prevent dehydration, first of all. Diet with a lot of rice, apple sauce, toast, banana are helpful. Advil or Motrin may help with chills. And Day/nyouil is helpful for sinus congestion. Be well soon. ...Read more
Not common: Not common but possible with any vaccine. After any vaccine the person/ child can feel drowsy and dizzy and if it happens soon after injection the person shd lie down right away or take the injection lying down. This prevents the blood to drain into the lower extremities by gravity and prevents the brain from being denied oxygen. A common enough cause of 'syncope' after any injection. ...Read more

Flu for 5 days despite of flu shot. Still have fever, aches, chills, no appetite, mild cough, headache, exhaustion. Still contagious? How long?
See your doctor.: One of the biggest problems from the flu is the chance of secondary bacterial infections, including sinusitis and pneumonia. Fever for 3-4 days can be normal, but with 5 days of it, it is time to be seen. You are contagious for 5-7 days after the onset of symptoms. If you have shortness of breath, dizziness, blurry vision, go to the ER. The vaccine only protects 60% of folks. ...Read more
Common : It is common to have some muscle soreness after a flu vaccine. It is not serious and usually resolves in a day or so. You may take some Ibuprofen for pain if you wish. Contrary to common belief, you can not get the flu from the flu shot- it's a killed vaccine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Nasal vs injected: What you mean by activated is unclear. There is no activated vaccine I am aware of. The injected vaccine is prepared from inactivated (killed) virus & cannot give you the flu. You can develop a shot reaction (mild) but it is not the flu. The nasal mist is a much weakened but live virus & rarely causes a mild flu like illness, but far less intense than a regular flu would be. ...Read more
Flu shot 3 days ago, gas, nausea, runny nose, headache, mild chest pain, weakness, sweating/chills, and dizzy. If not flu shot then what?
How diagnosed ?: If you took the injected vaccine, it is dead material and there is no way you got the flu from it. Was your "flu" diagnosed by a health practitioner using a flu test? You can certainly have a reaction/allergy to a component of the vaccine that makes you sick, and an allergist might be able to confirm that. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
