Egg Allergy: an update was published by Tan & Joshi 2013.
Egg allergy and vaccination myths:
- Myth 1. There is egg in the MMR vaccine (A. T. Clark, 2010).
- Myth 2. Egg allergic children should be given their MMR vaccine in hospital (Cronin J, 2012).
All children with egg allergy should receive measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccination in the normal manner in the Community.
The egg content of the flu vaccine varies from year to year.
If the flu vaccine is needed for an egg allergic child, refer to the HSE vaccination guidelines, Erlewyn-Lajeunesse (BMJ 2009) and Clark (ClinExpAll 2010) for specific guidelines
