Without doing further research, I would assume that any vaccine (such as flu/pneumonia/shingles which is available without prescription would not be deductible.

Here's a question - are you paying for the immunization (the drug)?
Or are you paying for the procedure to inject it (the nurse's time)?
Does it matter? (Seems like it would change it's standing - but what do I know? :)

Every flu shot I've gotten has been administered by a nurse - so it isn't quite the same as an OTC med like aspirin, etc.
