I took a flu shot but i've got something that's hard to shake...clogged head, coughing, and feeling bad. I was just wondering if the flu, or something similar, is going around?

Well it's not the shot that's made you sick. It sometimes can because they give you a live virus in the vile to fight off. The shot is ONLY 59% effective of preventing the flu. You can still contract the flu even if you've been vaccinated. It's a possibility you could very well have the flu. Hope you feel better soon.
