Put ice on it and take ibuprofen (anti-inflammatory). If it is the same in two days, go back to the doctors. Most likely cause is a reaction to the ingredients that make up the liquid part of the serum rather than the dead flu virus itself. The virus is sterile.

Do flu shots still contain mercury?

Some large, multi-use containers of flu vaccine contain a trace amount of ethyl mercury, a harmless preservative.

The poisonous forms of mercury are methyl mercury, pure mercury, or mercury vapour.

This is analogous to chlorine, a most toxic gas, and very harmful as hydrochloric acid, yet we eat it every day as common salt, sodium chloride.

If you are still concerned ask for your flu shot to be given from a single use vial, which contains no preservative.

How does the flu shot actually work?

The flu shot causes anti bodies to develop in your body that then protect you against infection from the flu virus. It takes about 2 weeks for the vaccine to work and whilst it can cause fatigue and muscle aches, it can't 'give you' the flu.

Are there different types of flu shots available?

: Yes, there are four main types of flu shots available:

1; The traditional flu shot that is injected into the muscle. It contains flu-particles but will not give you the flu.

2; The high-dose shot that is the same as the shot above but contains a higher dose

3; The intradermal flu shot that contains the same vaccine as the others but can be injected just skin deep and can be used on people age 18 to 64.

4; The nasal spray vaccine that can be used on people age 2 to 49. It contains a live, weakened flu virus.

Your doctor will advise you which of the vaccines is best for you.

When is the best time of year to get a flu shot?

There is a flu season that runs approximately from October through to May. It doesn't mean you can't get it at other times of the year, but this is 'the season' where a lot of people suffer and infect each other. So it's probably best to have it done around September.

What is the flu shot? Everyone seems to be talking about it.

The flu shot is the flu vaccine that is given once a year to prevent the flu. It's primarily given to children, people with sicknesses and the elderly but given how many people are hospitalized with flu each year, it's becoming increasingly popular for people to get the shot no matter their age.
