Flu Shot

Thursday afternoon I got my flu shot.  By Friday evening I had a fever, cough, sore throat, congestion, body ache.

I took the day off work Friday.  I just may have to change that personal day to a sick day... maybe two.  Uggghhhh!!

My co-worker got her flu shot at the same time (given at school) and is doing great.  Have you gotten your flu shot?  Any side effects?

       UPDATE:
By Sunday night I felt better - except for a headache that wouldn't let up.  By Monday afternoon I felt tons better - I'm glad I didn't waste a sick day.

I have not gotten a flu shot because I'm convinced I'll get the flu if I do! That's the way my mind works these days...anyway, I am a new follower from Over 40 and I hope you feel better!

My husband says I'm nuts and I shouldn't have gotten the shot. I've had it before with no problem.

I haven't gotten my flu shot yet but I plan to get it in November sometime. I am sorry to hear you had a problem with it. I have gotten one the last few years with no issue so maybe it is this years shot? I will see if I have similar symptoms after getting it.
