    The flu vaccine rarely causes serious adverse effects. The most common reaction to the flu shot is mild soreness at the site of injection which is well-tolerated. Flu-like symptoms, such as fever and muscle aches, occasionally occur six to 12 hours after receiving the flu shot and last one to two days. If your symptoms do not resolve or if symptoms worsen, follow-up with your regular doctor. READ MORE
