People allergic to eggs, safe to get flu vaccine

"When someone gets a flu shot, health care providers often ask if they are allergic to eggs", said allergist Matthew Greenhawt, MD, chair of the ACAAI Food Allergy Committee and lead author of the practice parameter. The report makes a strong recommendation that people with egg allergies-regardless of how severe those allergies may be-should still get the flu vaccine, based on data from more than two dozens studies.

The U.S. Preventative Task Force even added that health care professionals don't need to ask about egg allergies at all when offering the flu shot to patients.

Last year, the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics both relaxed their flu shot guidelines for patients with egg allergies.

The flu is now considered to be widespread in CT, according to health officials.

However, doctors said she might want to reconsider, especially with the flu already widespread. "The overwhelming evidence since 2011 has shown that a flu shot poses no greater risk to those with egg allergy than those without".

"We still have some time to get immunized we think it's going to peak earlier this year than it did last year for the flu season which means near the end of this month", said Dr. Whitacre.

There have been 39 flu-related hospitalizations so far in Cuyahoga County, 33 in Summit County and 42 in Stark, according to health department statistics.

In the most recent week numbers are available, 144 people went to the hospital with the flu. Dr. Wu said they typically start to see flu cases diminish toward the end of April. "Although people with the flu are most contagious in the first 3-4 days after their illness begins, some otherwise healthy adults may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick". Experts say it's still not too late to get your 2017-18 shot.

As for how effective this year's vaccine will be?

Dr Atherton said: "We know that children are super-spreaders of germs".
