I received a flu shot a little over three weeks ago, and have had no side effects from it. I am cautious about receiving a live vaccine because I take an immune suppresant, but TIV influenza vaccine is a killed-virus drug.

I recommend studying the Contraindications and Precautions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

Precautions should be discussed with a physician.
