In brief: Unlikely
Pollen causing "hay fever" is inhaled commonly causing the nasal or chest symptoms associated with allergic disease.
Anaphylaxis is generally caused by something injected (medication, insect venom) or something ingested ( peanut, tree nuts or sea food) which causes the systemic symptoms.
