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.
