I was wondering if anyone with children (those with food allergies) in grade 7 (and older) has had their child receive the menactra vaccine? My son is currently in grade 7 and scheduled to receive the vaccine, at school, on December 1, 2014. It is a required vaccine. I've been in touch with my son's allergist, and their are no allergic concerns for him, but I would still like to hear from others on this forum. Thank you.

16 yr old daughter: no health issues
13 yr old son: allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, egg, fish, sesame,sunflower,mustard,poppy seeds, peas, carrots, some fruits, instructed to avoid legumes(except soy & green beans),pollen, cats, horses, cold urticaria

My daughter had the grade 7 vaccine last year.

We chose to take her to a clinic and have it done where we could supervise her rather than have it done at school.

We're avoiding peanuts, all tree nuts, eggs, milk and most legumes (but not soy).

I hope this helps. :)

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees
