if your kid has an egg allergy but can eat foods with eggs in it, just not straight up eggs do you get them a flu shot?

I would ask your allergist. We never gave Lily flu shots but she could not eat egg at all - don't know about the baked-in thing. I *think* the virus used in the vaccine is incubated in raw egg, so that would be the question - but definitely let us know what the doc says.

Both my kids are allergic to eggs ( never ate them at all )and for the first time this year they both got the flu shot .. They had no reaction. Each year prior they both got the flu. Hoping this year because of the shot the will be healthy
