I would not think it is the flu shot. But, I know quite a few person's without lung problems, that have your same symptoms. But, if I were you I'd call my GP and see if antibiotics would be needed, you don't want to get a bad chest infection or a exacerbation.

Take good care...hope you feel better soon.



Hard to say. I get sick for about 24 hrs after every flu shot. It’s my immune system ferociously going after it and building antibodies. It’s just something I always get after a flu shot! Fever, shakes...miserable one day then gone....


I was allways asked if I was feeling well before flu jab as if you have an existing complaintnot yetclear then the immune s cant cope


I just had a tetanus and while I didn’t feel horrible after I felt bad. It’s my immune systems reaction to anything foreign my GP said. Some people are just that way.
