    I got my flue shot on sat afternoon, when i woke up sun (approx 12hrs later) i had a head cold. by mon i had a good head cold with achiness. tues and today (wed) i still have the head cold, no voice and feel achy all over. maybe it is a coincidence and not the result of the flu shot? i have gotten flu shots every year for decades and have never had a reaction like this.
