In brief: No

But if you had just exercised in the previous few hours that could do it.
It's not a harmful level. If you are having chest pain or difficulty breathing or seeing dark reddish brown urine, you should see your doctor.

In brief: Not likely

Simple flu vaccine should not cause that much muscle damage to raise the enzyme level so high.
It would be prudent to consult your doctor.
