How Does the Flu Vaccine Work?

The flu vaccine works by introducing an inactive form of the influenza virus into the body. This inactive virus cannot make you sick, but it does trick the immune system into thinking influenza is present, thus prompting the development of antibodies. Then, should you come in contact with influenza after receiving your shot, your immune system will already be prepared to neutralize the virus before you feel its effects.

What are the Side Effects of the Flu Vaccine?

Because the flu vaccine is administered as a shot, there are a few minor side effects that can occur at the injection site. These include:

  • Soreness
  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Swelling

Though uncommon, it is also possible to experience a low-grade fever and muscle aches after receiving a flu vaccine, however, the flu itself cannot develop.
