The majority of flu vaccines are cultured on fluid from chicken embryos and therefore have a small amount of egg protein in them. This poses a theoretical risk of inducing an allergic reaction to thos who have egg allergies. However over the years, the amount of egg protein in the flu vaccines have decreased significantly and no serious reactions have been reported even in patients with severe egg allergies.
