Flu shots

I just had a strange thought....

Is it possible for the DNA in a flu shot to combine with a non 
virulent virus causing it to become virulent? 

I remember Griffith showing this can happen with bacteria and 
became curious about transduction or transfection in viruses...

Any comments? (I ask this after getting a flu shot today...)
