Non-IgE Egg Allergy and the Egg-Free Flu Shot

Introduction post

Last fall I was able to get the new egg-free flu shot and I had no symptoms at all! As I've posted before, from the regular shot I got bothersome sinus pain and pressure, chest pressure, upset stomach and fatigue that lasted a few days.

With the egg-free shot I didn't get any of these symptoms. The only symptom, if you could call it that, was a little soreness at the injection site. I wouldn't have even noticed it if I hadn't been watching for symptoms.

Yay!  :)  :)  :)
