Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Resources for Health Professionals

Note: “ACIP Recommendations for the Use of Quadrivalent Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine (LAIV4) — United States, 2018–19 Influenza Season” appeared in an MMWR report on June 8, 2018. The full ACIP recommendations on the Prevention and Control of Seasonal Influenza with Vaccines will be published later this summer. Content throughout the rest of the influenza web site will be updated over the coming weeks.

Special Consideration Regarding Egg Allergy

The recommendations for vaccination of people with egg allergies have not changed since last season (2016-2017).

People with egg allergies can receive any licensed, recommended age-appropriate influenza vaccine and no longer have to be monitored for 30 minutes after receiving the vaccine. People who have severe egg allergies should be vaccinated in a medical setting and be supervised by a health care provider who is able to recognize and manage severe allergic conditions.
