Most flu vaccine is made with eggs. Two types of vaccine—cell-based and recombinant—are not made with eggs. People who have had only hives from eggs can get any type of flu vaccine that is otherwise appropriate for their age and health status. People with more severe allergic reactions to eggs, like wheezing or swelling of the face or throat, can also get any type of flu vaccine. If they get egg-based vaccine, they should be vaccinated by a healthcare provider with experience treating allergic reactions.
