Being in Canada, we're privileged to get H1N1 vaccination from the government of Canada.  It seems that if a person is allergic to eggs, H1N1 vaccine can't be administered because the vaccine contains eggs.  According to health officials, if you're allergic to eggs, you're already been protected naturally and there are other options to get more protection by talking to your family physician.

Check out these articles that I came across today talks about this topic in detail.  Hope this helps.

Have you had your H1N1 vaccination from your region or country?

Thanks for the links Sally.  I did get my vaccine 2 days back and my hand is swollen.  Coping with pain.  Sad

Our 5 y.o. daughter has class 3 egg allergy and contracted H1N1.  She was placed on a ventilator for nearly a month.  She nearly died from it.  I wouldn't rely on egg allergy to protect my children from this deadly virus.

Oh that was awful... good thing she recovered. Physicians should have at least check your daughter's allergies before taking the procedure.
