Some people develop flu-like symptoms. I would just look out for anything abnormal -- high fever, inconsolable crying, etc. General malaise is probably normal (BTW, this is my completely unprofessional opinion -- I really have no idea!).

Re: What are the side effects of the flu shot??

Typical reaction is just soreness at the injection site. It's a dead virus, so there really shouldn't be any reactions.

However,

Side Effects of Flu Shots for Children

The side effects from flu shots for children are mild. They include:

* Redness or soreness at the site of the injection
* Low-grade fever
* Aches

Remember that flu shots for children cannot give your child the flu. More serious side effects are very rare.

Allergic reactions are a risk with any medicine. Signs of allergic reaction to a flu vaccine include:

* Trouble breathing
* Hives
* Paleness
* Weakness
* Fast heartbeat
* Dizziness

If you see any of these signs, get emergency help.
