Who should not get the vaccine?
If you have any severe (life-threatening) allergies you should not get vaccinated. If you ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction after a dose of flu vaccine, or have a severe allergy to any part of this vaccine, you may be advised not to get a dose. Most, but not all, types of flu vaccine contain a small amount of egg.
If you ever had Guillain-Barré Syndrome (a severe paralyzing illness, also called GBS) you should be discussed with your doctor if you should get vaccinated. Some people with a history of GBS should not get this vaccine.
If you are not feeling well you may be asked to wait until you feel better before getting a flu shot.
