You should not get a flu shot if…

  • You have had a severe reaction to the flu shot in the past.
  • You have a known allergy to eggs or thimerosal.
  • You are ill on the day you plan to get the flu shot.

What are the risks and how might I feel after my shot?
The vaccine, like any medication, is capable of causing side effects, which can be either mild or, occasionally, severe. The risk of the vaccine causing serious harm is extremely small. Most people who get the vaccine have either no side effects or mild side effects. A Ministry of Health "Influenza Vaccine Fact Sheet" is available on the websites listed below.
