In brief: Avoidance needed
As with other food allergies, strict avoidance is required.
It is important to check labels carefully. You should carry an Epinephrine auto-injector (epi-pen, ets.) vaccines, such as dtap, mmr, varicella and certain influenza vaccines contain gelatin. Desensitization protocols for these vaccines exist.
