Flu Vaccine Quiz – Answer Three

Flu Vaccine Quiz

3. If you have an egg allergy, you cannot get the flu shot.

ANSWER: False.

This used to be the recommendation but the guidelines recently changed and now any egg-allergic person can get the flu shot. However, if you have very serious reactions to eggs (trouble breathing, recurrent vomiting, etc.) you should only get the flu shot from a medical provider who can recognize and treat a serious allergic response.
