In brief: Depends on Ur system

A person can always have a reaction to a component of the vaccine, including a trace amount of preservative or egg protein.
The vaccine itself is dead, not alive & this seasons vaccine has had less pain or reactions associated with it than last seasons.Most centers will have you wait for at least 15-30 min after the shot to see if you have the scary kind of rxn so treatment can be given.
