I have a mild fever following flu vaccination - does that mean I could give others the actual flu?

No, it's just your immune system's response, you don't have the actual flu.

It isn’t a live vaccine.

As pp said no. If its any comfort I had mine a few weeks ago and felt pretty rubbish. So it's common.

Or you might have coincidentally come down with a different bug. I was very unwell 24 hours after mine this year: sore throat, temperature, aching, needed a week off work. Nothing to do with the vaccination though - I'd got tonsillitis!
