Even though Nathan is allergic to eggs he has gotten the flu shot in the past, once by the allergist office and once by his Pediatrician.
Well, I called at made an appointment for a flu shot this year at his pediatrician's office and they told me they can't do it, we need to go to the allergist to get it done. I told them they did it last year and Nathan didn't have any problems so why can't they do it this year. The nurse told me the pediatrician will call me.
Is the flu shot this year stronger and they worry he will have a reaction. Going to the Allergist will be a long 3 hour appointment because they just do a little bit at a time.
Part of me says forget the flu shot but we get it every year plus Nathan has Asthma that is mostly viral induced. He needs the flu shot.
