Flu Shot is Safe for Those with Egg Allergies

  • Flu vaccine

Flu activity in OH has become widespread, the state's highest designation, almost a month earlier than past year and has resulted in a number of hospitalizations in Clark County already.

Clark County saw more than 40 flu-related hospitalizations during the last flu season, a majority of which involved people ages 60 and older, according to the Clark County Combined Health District. The CDC now recommends that almost all Americans older than six months get a flu shot, with an emphasis on young children, elderly adults and those with chronic illnesses.

Hospitalization numbers are well above last year and above the five-year average.

The authors conclude by stating that "Vaccine providers and screening questionnaires do not need to ask about the egg allergy status of recipients of influenza vaccine".

"We are still wanting people to get the vaccine, simply because there are still some strains that can be prevented".

Khan said the pediatric units "bear the brunt of the flu season", but they aren't "in a surge at this time". For some licensed preparations, the viruses were grown in chicken eggs and therefore the vaccine contained trace amounts of egg protein which can induce immediate hypersensitivity reactions. "Both children and asthmatics are vulnerable populations who are highly recommended to receive annual influenza vaccine, so this subgroup is, in particular, a prime target to protect". In the past, people with egg allergy were advised to explore egg-free flu vaccination options.

However others, including Elizondo, say while Pentagon funding for the program ended at this time, the program does still exist. Reid enlisted support of two other lawmakers, Ted Stevens, the late Republican senator from Alaska, and Democrat Daniel K.

People with egg allergies don't have to worry about getting the flu shot, new government guidelines say.

One of the main concerns with any vaccine is a severe allergic reaction - known as anaphylaxis.

"We are now at the point where any remaining contraindication or special precaution is unnecessary, and there should be no barrier to the egg allergic patient receiving this vaccine in the primary care setting, like any patient may", Greenhawt noted.

"Our summer was very busy, so the adult side has been having surge issues longer standing that are beyond flu", she said.

"Widespread" is the highest level of the flu activity, a step up from "regional" which means cases of the flu are now in every region of the state.

"We have to wait and see what happens from there", he said. That means the vaccine should be as effective as it was a year ago.
