I was feeling great with no signs of sickness when I got my mandatory flu vaccine. I got it at 5 am and then had an inservice that morning. by noon i was feeling bad. by 5 pm that night i was achy and had a fever. I started to have nasal drainage and a sore throat. the next day I was coughing a lot. The cough has continued for 8 days now. I'm feeling ok other than my chest.
So, soon I am going to be asked to take the swine flu vaccine. I am very leary of taking it. I dont want to go through this again. Anyone else get sick from it. I thought we couldnt get sick since it is a dead strain. but this is the third year i have got sick from the vaccine. I had to get it both years I was in nursing school and both times I was sick afterwards. I thought it was coincidence but now i'm not sure. I'm working with pregnant woman though and new babies so they are high risk categories. I should be fine if i just stay home if i'm not feeling well right?
