  • Eggs and flu shots

    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. Egg allergies are no longer considered contraindications to receiving the flu vaccines. It is recommended that all patients ≥6 months of age with egg allergy, including those with a history of anaphylaxis, receive annual immunization with an influenza vaccine according to the indications for all other patients without egg allergy.

  • Why was I prescribed an antibiotic for an ear infection? Don't I need drops?

    If you were diagnosed with "swimmer's ear", which is an infection of the outer ear canal, then topical antibiotics are the treatment. If you were diagnosed with a bacterial middle ear infection (space behind the ear drum), then oral antibiotics are prescribed since the topical antibiotics would not be able to penetrate the eardrum (unless the ear drum is ruptured or perforated).
