Influenza, Allergies and Orthopedics - Oh My!

Male Physician giving vaccine to female patient, masks on

Did you know the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends routine vaccination to prevent 17 vaccine-preventable diseases that occur in infants, children, adolescents, or adults. The flu vaccine is just one of the 17 preventable diseases. 

For many of us it is as easy as going to the doctors office and getting your shot (or nasal spray). While some of us this task is all too daunting, because of an egg allergy. 

Influenza Vaccination of People with a History of Egg Allergy

Most influenza vaccines, with the exception of recombinant influenza vaccine (RIV4) and cell culture-based influenza vaccine (ccIIV4), are cultured in eggs and might contain trace amounts of egg protein (e.g., ovalbumin).

Getting the Vaccine 

The flu vaccination 'best practice' guidance is intended for clinicians and other health care providers who vaccinate patients in varied settings, including hospitals, provider offices, pharmacies, schools, community health centers, and public health clinics. This is because vaccination providers help patients understand the substantial body of (occasionally conflicting) information about vaccination. 

At Perimeter Orthopaedics, we strive ourselves to help the community in all ways possible. With Covid19 still in the way, we will be offering the flu shot in our practice as a way to limit your trips to the doctors office.
