In brief: Flu shot may be OK.

There have been a number of recent studies addressing this problem. Recommendations now include that the flu shot can be given to someone with mild to moderate egg allergy (hives, for example) with doctor supervision.
Not enough space here to adequately describe rules for this. For more info, see: http://www.Cdc.Gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6033a3.Htm.
