In brief: Mild vs major
In patients with known severe reaction to eggs or chicken protein, the flu shot is not recommended.
(injected or nasal) this includes those with hives, angioedema, allergic asthma or anaphylaxis. Those with minor local reactions to egg or feathers are not considered at risk. See aap/red book 28ed.2009.
