can the H1N1 Vaccine make you sick?

A year ago, I was going on a trip to South America, and one of the vaccines they gave me a few days before I left was for H1N1. Well, about a week after I got the vaccination, I got what I think might be the flu. I was suddenly hit with a fever of 102 which lasted for about 5 or 6 days, headache, stuffy nose... but those were the only symptoms for he first few days. After a few days, I started feeling junk in my lungs, but I wasn't really coughing. But within 4 or 5 days, I was coughing up so much mucous. I've never had a cough that bad that produced to much mucous in my life. I had that cough for over two weeks. It was awful. I often wonder if the Swine Flu vaccination actually gave me the flu... does this ever happen?

Re: can the H1N1 Vaccine make you sick?

Vaccines often cause a fever. They don't usually cause coughing, though, and typically the reaction shows up within 1-3 days, not a week later.

I think it was just a coincidence. Did you get sick during the trip? International flights are a hotbed of disease.

Ok, thanks,
Yeah, I got sick during the trip. I didn't know international flights had so many germs. More than domestic flights? I have gotten sick after flying within this country before!

Well, yes, all flights are good places to get sick, but international flights are longer and have people from more countries on them, which makes it more likely.
