My kids get it. But I don't I was thinking of getting it this year. Years ago I was told not to because I tested positive for an egg allergy. But I eat eggs all the time with no reaction.

4 of the 5 kids have gotten flu shots this year. The 5th fibbed at his well child exam, so I have to haul him back in. 


I am allergic to a protein in eggs, so no vaccine for me. Nasal is out becuase I am asthmatic. I did read, that they have a new one that is egg free, but so far my Dr hasn't gotten anything on it.

We don't for the reason of egg allergy.

They have flu shots that are safe for people with egg allergies now. You should ask your doctor.
