Sanjay Gupta talked about this on CNN tonight. He said you can't sick from the flu shot, but that it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to fully immunize. Therefore, you could catch the flu from someone before the vaccine has been able to become effective in your body.

The flu vaccine is "dead;" therefore, you can't get the flu from the shot itself.

I got a flu shot today; I hope I got it in time before the flu becomes epidemic in SoCal.
