In brief: Site redness
The most common side effects of the swine flu,or H1N1, vaccination is redness or swelling at the injection site.
The vaccine is a killed virus and, contrary to rumor and internet conspiracy theories, you cannot get the flu from a killed virus. A small percentage of people are allergic to the egg yolk material used to make the vaccine, or other components. For most, perfectly safe.

In brief: Lack of immunity
Some experts report that flu vaccines arouse an immune response in less than one-third of people who receive it.
If this is true then a serious side effect is ineffectiveness.
