Seasonal Influenza Vaccine 2013-2014 - Allergic to eggs
Seasonal Influenza vaccine virus is grown in eggs. A severe allergy to eggs may be a reason not to get the seasonal influenza vaccine. People who have had any of the following symptoms or experiences should consult with a doctor or other medical professional before considering any influenza vaccination: hives or swelling of the lips or tongue; acute respiratory distress (trouble breathing) after eating eggs; documented hypersensitivity to eggs, including those who have had asthma related to egg exposure. People who display severe hypersensitivity to eggs should seek advice from their medical provider. There is a new egg-free flu vaccine product (FluBlok) available from private doctors in the community.
