    I think you can get it as long as you don't have a fever. If you have a fever, then no.

    You can get it but it won't protect you if you already have the flu, I think it takes a couple of weeks before you are protected.

    If it's any consolation, I had the flu jab a few weeks ago and have come down with a cold and sore throat today!
    A friend of mine was told she couldn't have it when she had a cold already but that just may be a one off. x
