I have had almost that same reaction twice! (My fever wasn't so high) It usually doesn't last very long at least... Kinda like an abbreviated flu..

:p
If your fever is steady at 103, you need to talk to a doctor, or the clinic that administered your shot, that is not a healthy temp!! Feel Better!!

Could be any number of things. You could have been incubating something when you got the shot and were going to get sick anyways. I've 'heard' its common to feel a sick after the shot, and it depends if you got a dead virus, or the live, weakened version.

I do know that my kids caught the swine flu last year, exactly 3 days after they got the nasal spray form vaccination. It then spread through the family (that wasnt vaccinated) and we were all ill for 5 weeks. I blame the vaccine, but I'm also prone to crazy conspiracy theories, so,

When I used to take flu shots, I'd usually feel feverish and achy for about a day and then was fine. I no longer get flu shots; I'll take my chances with natural immune system boosters. Andrographis is my favorite with my system. I just don't trust the government with my health anymore.

But don't let me influence you one way or another; know your own health issues, research and decide for yourself.

That is the reason I no longer get the flu shots every time I have gotten one I got sick from it. my Dr. suggested i no longer get them. Hope you fell better but you should call the Dr. to let him know how high the fever is.

I asked my Dr. about this once and she said a long time ago the vaccince was from a live virus but not anymore. I never have a reaction, just a sore arm!
