Flu shots may be given to egg allergic patients!

Dr. Patricia Gomez-Dinger

‎20% of the US population comes down with the flu every year. That is why it is important to get your flu vaccine yearly. In the past, patients were told that if they had egg allergy then they could not receive a flu vaccine or they needed to be seen by an Allergist. Allergists have routinely done allergy testing for flu vaccine and followed a protocol for administering the flu shot to those patients with egg allergy.

70% of US households have pets. 10 million pet owners, both adults and children, are allergic to their dog or cat and have to be extra careful around their furry friends. The presence of allergic dander in cats and dogs, contrary to popular belief, is not affected by the length of hair or fur, and their are truly no "hypoallergenic breeds".
