"The overwhelming evidence since 2011 has shown that a flu shot poses no greater risk to those with egg allergy than those without".
But a paper published Tuesday in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology found the flu shot to be safe and recommended its use for people who are allergic to eggs. "We want health care providers and people with egg allergy to know there is no need to ask this question anymore, and no need to take any special precautions". In the past, people with egg allergy were advised to explore egg-free flu vaccination options.

Khan said they've seen some patients admitted into the hospital for the flu, but there aren't any definitive numbers at this point.
Although no seasonal flu vaccine is 100% effective (last year's vaccine was just 42% effective), it is still the best way to prevent infection.
"Egg allergy primarily affects young children, who are also particularly vulnerable to the flu", Kelso added.
Flu vaccines are also available in the form of a nasal spray
If the vaccine is age-appropriate, it can be used for anyone with or without egg allergy.
The new guidelines are the result of an analysis of 28 studies involving thousands of people with egg allergy, including hundreds with severe egg allergy.
One of the main concerns with any vaccine is a severe allergic reaction - known as anaphylaxis.
The health district likely won't hear about someone missing work or school for a week because of the flu virus, Patterson said.
"When the flu hits you, the average adult or child is down for several days", Patterson said. "It's a very important vaccine to get every year".
"My understanding is there's definitely some open beds at this time, we have the capacity to open extra beds if needed still", Khan said.
