Can I get the flu from the flu vaccine?

No! No, the flu shot is a dead vaccination and not able to pass infection. There is no live virus there to cause infection and therefore zero percent chance of this occuring. The nasal flu vaccine, on the other hand, is a live virus vaccine. However, it is engineered to die at body temperature and therefore not able to cause significant illness. It may cause runny nose and congestion but not full flu.
