How it's given For adults, the flu vaccine is given in your arm. Children get the Fluenz Tetra vaccine through their nose as a nasal spray. When it starts to work It takes 2 weeks for the vaccine to work. It should protect you for the whole flu season. Side effects After the vaccine, you may have some mild side effects. These may include: soreness, redness or swelling where you got the injection fever (high temperature - 38 degrees Celsius or above) mild sweating and shivering headache aches feeling tired If you feel any of these side effects, rest and take paracetamol. Serious side effects Serious side effects such as a severe allergic reaction are rare. In very rare cases Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) has been reported. GBS is a condition that affects the nerves in the body. It causes nerve inflammation and can cause pain, numbness, muscle weakness and difficulty walking. You are far more likely to get Guillain-Barré syndrome from having the flu than from the flu vaccine.
