Egg allergy and influenza vaccinations in 2020

23 March 2020

Egg allergy is not a contraindication to receiving the 2020 influenza vaccine and people with egg allergy, including anaphylaxis, can be safely vaccinated with influenza vaccines. People with a history of anaphylaxis to egg can be vaccinated with a full vaccine dose in medical facilities with staff experienced in recognising and treating anaphylaxis. All staff performing vaccinations should be able to recognise and treat anaphylaxis.
