He says it's still too early to tell, but he says those thinking of getting the vaccine, shouldn't be anxious about that myth that you'll get the flu from the flu shot.

Because the vaccine contains egg protein, doctors used to advise against the shot entirely or to get it only in the presence of an allergist if someone had a known allergy.

"When someone gets a flu shot, health care providers often ask if they are allergic to eggs", says allergist Matthew Greenhawt, MD, chair of the ACAAI Food Allergy Committee and lead author of the practice parameter.

To determine if the vaccine was risky for people with egg allergies, Kelso and his colleagues pored through the medical literature and found 28 studies with data from 4,315 egg allergic patients, including 656 who were severely allergic.

The flu is now considered to be widespread in CT, according to health officials. "There are no shortages of vaccines available", she said.

"I actually do normally get the flu shot".

Vaccination against flu can help reduce hospital admissions in this age group and help stop the spread of flu in the community.

Khan said the flu season this year may be worse than the last, judging from how badly Australia was hit and also concerns about the flu vaccine not being as effective as desired.

According to the CDC, fewer than 500,000 American adults may be allergic to eggs-while 140,000 to 710,000 people have been hospitalized and 12,00 to 56,000 people have died every year since 2010 due to the flu.

The new findings mean that even more people will be able to get their recommended flu shot without sacrificing peace of mind.

The DPH said more than 250 people tested positive for the flu as of early December.

See an allergy specialist for the flu shot.

The best ways to avoid the flu include staying away from people who you know or suspect may be sick; covering your mouth when you cough and nose when you sneeze; and washing your hands regularly - especially during the cold winter months.
