Eggs by Other Names
If you see these ingredients on food labels, it means the food may contain egg proteins:
What About Vaccines?
If you have an allergy to eggs, talk to your doctor first before getting a vaccination.
The yellow fever vaccine contains egg protein. The CDC and the World Health Organization say that you should not get this vaccine if you have a severe egg allergy.
The measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine also may contain a trace amount of eggs. But studies show that it’s safe for people with egg allergies.
Flu vaccines may also contain some egg protein. Experts have long advised people with allergies to eggs not to get the flu shot. But the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology says the vaccine contains such a low amount of egg protein that it's unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.
There is a version of the flu vaccine, called Flublok, that’s made without using eggs. It’s approved for adults ages 18 to 49.
