Side effects of flu shot in infants? Also, would they be contagious? 6mo got flu shot on Friday and has had elevated temp no fever runny nose cough

In brief: Unrelated

The child's symptoms are unrelated to the vaccine.
It is possible the child came in contact with someone with a cold around that time. The flu vaccine is a dead virus vaccine, does not cause illness, nor is the patient who receives the vaccine contagious.
