New Flu Vaccine Guidelines Issued for Patients With Egg Allergy

ZANESVILLE, Ohio- Flu activity has officially been elevated to "widespread" in the state of Ohio according to health officials.
The season's first flu-related death was reported last week.
Khan said the flu season this year may be worse than the last, judging from how badly Australia was hit and also concerns about the flu vaccine not being as effective as desired. Previous year a total of more than 8,600 flu-associated hospitalizations were reported statewide.
And even though the vaccine is only partially effective, it still will prevent many people from coming down with flu and make it milder for those who catch it, Brammer said.
Last year, the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics both relaxed their flu shot guidelines for patients with egg allergies. Those studies showed that people with egg allergies were no more likely than others to react to a flu shot. "Both children and asthmatics are vulnerable populations who are highly recommended to receive annual influenza vaccine, so this subgroup is, in particular, a prime target to protect".
Ferguson said besides getting a flu shot, people should wash their hands frequently and cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze.
If the vaccine is age-appropriate, it can be used for anyone with or without egg allergy.
The new guidelines are the result of an analysis of 28 studies involving thousands of people with egg allergy, including hundreds with severe egg allergy.
"Widespread just means that we are seeing it in all pockets of the state", Ohio Department of Health spokeswoman Melanie Amato said, "from northeast to southwest".
"Our summer was very busy, so the adult side has been having surge issues longer standing that are beyond flu", she said.
Khan said there is also an intranasal spray version of the vaccine for those who don't want the needle.
"My understanding is there's definitely some open beds at this time, we have the capacity to open extra beds if needed still", Khan said. That means the vaccine should be as effective as it was past year.
