Egg and milk intolerant babies and vaccines

My baby has bad colic and reflux, he's on Similac Alumentum formula, which has helped. Based on that my pediatrician belives that he is intolerant to milk protein and eggs.
I refused vaccines, as they contain cow milk protein, lactose and egg strings.
My nephew, who is alergic to eggs made a horrible reaction to the flu shot lat year, so I did some research. The doctor didn't say anything about it and let me delay vaccination for now.
Do any of you have cow milk or eggs intolerant babies or children and did you have any reaction to any vaccines? Please share some experience.

I don't believe that babies need so many vaccines with so much aluminum and other ingrediants and almost no control (in Europe the ingredients in the vaccines are regulated much better) so early and so many at once.
So we were going to delay anyway, especially the Hepatitis B, I'm not planning to get until he's ready for kindergarden.
But many doctors give the vaccines without informing the parents of intolerant babies that the vaccines contain cow milk protein, lactose and eggs and don't let the parents decide if the want to do the vaccines. Like my sister-in-law who had to put her son on so corticosteroids for weeks and poor baby was miserable with horrible bleeding rashes!

I am lactose and always get the flu shot. Never had a problem with it. I would continue talking to your doctor about it.

My 2 year old is severely allergic to eggs. Swelling, hives etc. Before we discovered he was allergic, he got the flu vaccine. He had an awful reaction. For one day he was shaking like a leaf, screaming and had a high fever. We never took him for his one month booster. He only gets a slight fever with other vaccines. His allergist said if we were really serious about the flu vaccine, they would give it to him in the allergy department and monitor him for 3 hours to make sure he doesn't go into anaphylactic shock.... we declined

My one year old recently got the flu vaccine (no allergy to eggs) and he got the same reaction. Crazy high fever, shaking like a leaf and screaming. I think we're going to hold off on the flu shot for the kids. I never have a problem when I get it.

Six had horrible reflux as an infant. She did well with Alimentum. She got all vaccines on schedule.

Our second foster placement was 21 months when we got her. She was allergic to dairy, soy, tomato, corn, citrus, and I don't remember what else. We vaccinated according to schedule and to catch up what she was missing. She did fine.

Good luck. I'm sorry your baby is so miserable.

My son has a dairy and soy allergy. I've read vaccine ingredients and there is no dairy in them.

I think they only recommend skipping the flu vaccine for egg allergies, not all of them. 

We have been lucky and ours don't have any allergies. My sister's kids (all three) are allergic to practically everything. Honestly, it's easier to list what they aren't allergic to than what they are. Eggs, dairy, wheat, nuts, all kinds of dyes, mold, dust, almost all animals with feathers or fur, cirtus, coconut, perfumes, hairspray, most soaps, latex, grass, a bunch of trees, one of them even has a cotton allergy. 

Anyway, they got their shots and were fine afterwards.
