I received the Flumist vaccine last week. Now I have the flu. I've always gotten the shot every year, but this year my insurance company pushed for the nasal vaccine.
The shot gives me really bad muscle pain and bruising so I thought the nasal version would spare me the pain. I would give anything to go back in time and have the shot instead of the nasal.
I feel like crap. Fever, chills, runny nose, awful sore throat, and coughing. Think long and hard before you go the nasal flu vaccine route.
