You might have picked something up in the waiting room at the surgery. I've never heard of anyone with that side effect so I'd say it's not related.

Can't see why it would be related... I usually get a very sore, achy arms and flu-like symptoms sufficient to make me have a couple of early nights. I think you've just been very unlucky with timings.

maybe you are allergic to an ingredient in the vaccine

I've posted on a flu jab thread today because I had very similar symptoms - within hours I had the runs and was nauseated, which lasted to the next day. I'm convinced it was connected as I was absolutely fine beforehand. Hope you feel better soon.
