Just getting to this now - was sent to my e-mail inbox back in March! Sorry for the delay. Great news for those with egg allergies!

I'd still be reluctant to get it for my daughter, because the regular flu shot i've heard contains 3 times the amount of protein (because it's 3 different strains) - it's what I was told, not sure if it was true.

My daughter was one of the few with full body hives/eczema flare up, it wasn't fun for her, I wouldn't chance it again I think, but will most likely discuss this with the allergist in Nov/Dec..
