No. All flu vaccines used in Australia are ‘inactivated’, which means they do not contain the live flu virus, which is why you can't catch the flu from flu vaccination.
Sometimes people can experience side effects after their flu vaccination. Side effects include include fever, tiredness and muscle aches. These side effects can start within a few hours of your being vaccinated and sometimes last for 1 or 2 days. They usually go away on their own, once your body has developed an immune response to the vaccine, which will protect you from the flu virus.

Getting a flu vaccination, not only reduces the risk of you getting the flu, but also those around you, including vulnerable members who are unable to get vaccinated such as babies under 6 months and adults with low immunity.
