Swine Flu Shot and egg allergy
If you are allergic to eggs, can you get the Swine flue shot?   I am mildly allergic to egg yolks.  Thanks for your help.

I just found this listed, and it could answer your question.  Check with your doctor or allergist about it!  (I've not had flu shots for the same allergy, but perhaps there's hope!)
