Interesting thing about the swine flu vaccine for people with EGG ALLERGY...

...I know, finally, for a fact that it does exist.

I was speaking to a consultant paediatrician the other day who is doing a huge study on uptake of the vaccine and he told me that an egg free version is now available.

There seems to be alot of uncertainty about this in MN. I am going to call my GP about it and try and get booked in.

Just to let you know! smile

I don't blame you. Fingers crossed that you get the jab quickly.
