Have already posted this in pregnancy but thought I'd give it a mention on allergies as people might be more familiar with it here.

I'm 23 weeks pg and have been offered optaflu vaccine as I'm allergic to eggs. Has anyone had it? Specifically during pregnancy? Are the side effects any different to the regular vaccine? Any alternatives available?
i'm going to think about it over the weekend and then contact my gp on Monday.

I know it hasn't been clinically trialled in pregnant women yet which is a worry.

Hi there

Know this post is old but I'd also be grateful to know anything more about optaflu - as far as I can see it should be good as it's a thimerosal free flu vaccine - but does anyone have any thoughts / experiences with it?

Thanks so much
Laura
