This answer was rated:

If you have recieved a flu shot which is a ,"a live, attenuated vaccine," how long do you have to wait before it is safe to give blood?

Welcome to Just Answer:

It is generally safe to give blood after 4 weeks of live attenuated flu shot vaccination, and there is no symptom such as cough, fever or fatigue. For killed/inactivated/recombinant vaccine, you should be able to give blood within 1-2 weeks.
