I got a flu shot when the Asian Flu was going around in 1957 and came down with it a day or so later. I was terribly sick, ran 104 for days. Blamed the vaccine for years, but have come to believe I was already infected when I got the shot. Have never had anything like that happen with subsequent flu shots or any other vaccines. I got a small pox booster as an adult on my doctor's advice for recurrent fever blisters. That was about 50 years ago; I never had another one since.
