Can flu shots lead to projectile vomiting?

Generally No. If this in fact a reaction, it is very rare and should resolve within 1-2 days. And it should occur within 24hrs of the shot. If the baby is vomiting projectily which means across the table, call your doctor.
No. Flu shots can sometimes result in viral symptoms which include nausea and vomiting. It is usually short lived and not too intense.

Rarely happens. A person may rarely vomit after a flu shot because: he was going to vomit anyway for an unrelated reason (nothing to do with the shot), he is scared of needles (people sometimes faint after a shot), he is having a rare allergic reaction to the shot (he may have other symptoms such as a hives rash).
