Can the flu shot give you the flu?

While a flu vaccine cannot give you flu illness, there are different side effects that may be associated with getting a flu shot or a nasal spray flu vaccine. These side effects are mild and short-lasting, especially when compared to symptoms of bad case of flu. The AAP has stated no preference this year between the nasal spray flu vaccine and flu shot.
