Flu Shot complications

Patient : What sort of a doctor should I see for flu shot complications?
Doctor :   Complication due to flu shot is very rare and the effects can include ; Local reaction at the site of injection such as soreness, pain and swelling. These are usually mild and should last less than 2-3 days. Systemic reactions include fever, rash, malaise and muscle aches. Allergic reactions include hives, angioedema and anaphylactic shock. I would suggest that you see a family physician or an internist if you have any side effects from the flu shot.
