High Dose Fluzone for 65 year Olds and Older

Please help.  
I am a very healthy 75 year old women who had the immunization shot on September 14 2012.   On September 27 I became ill with no ther symptom but upper body chills and a clammy feeling.  This feeling changes from cold to hot.  It is very uncomfortable.  I never had a fever or ache.  I have had all sorts of blood tests, urine analysis etc.  nothing is showing up. I have seen two internal medicine Drs. need suggestions

Hi there,
Higher dose of antigen in the vaccine is indicated in older people for a better immune response and therefore better protection against flu. The common side effects of this vaccine are usually short lived. They are pain, redness and swelling at the injection site and headache, muscle aches, fever and malaise. It cannot be confirmed without a complete clinical examination and workup that the symptoms experienced by you are due to the vaccine or some other condition. Heat intolerance can indicate thyroid problem. Iron deficiency anemia is other condition leading to slow metabolism and cold sensation. It is best to seek expert opinion for your symptoms. Hope it helps.
Take care and regards!

Do the flu shots still have mercury in them?
