Answer: Yes, people with egg allergy, including a history of anaphylaxis, can be safely vaccinated with influenza vaccines
1. Non-anaphylaxis egg allergy: Vaccinate with full age-appropriate dose in any immunisation setting
2. Anaphylaxis egg allergy: Vaccinate with full age-appropriate dose in a medical facility with staff experienced in recognising and treating anaphylaxis
Note: Anaphylaxis after a dose of any influenza vaccine is a contraindication to future influenza vaccination
