I've only had the flu shot twice and both times I have gotten what seemed like a cold and was achy and tired for a few days afterward.

It was reported on the evening news that taking the flu shot can not cause you to contract the flu virus. The achy flu-like symptoms you experience after taking the shot are signs that the injection is actually working. These signs should go away within two to three days. The vaccine should be fully operational in two weeks.
