Flu shot side effects...

I've had two or three flu shots before, and no symptoms whatsoever from them.

This time? I started coughing a few hours later, a miserable, cloggy, awful cough that fortunately went away within a few hours. I'm still wicked hoarse and my throat is a bit sore from the coughs, though I don't have any other problems... and the literature says mild side effects like this usually start shortly after the shot and last 1-2 days. Blech. Do not like.

Taking the morning off (massage!) and have many grand plans for the afternoon that may or may not happen.
