Next year's flu vaccine is getting a complete overhaul, to protect against 3 new strains of the flu. This scary for anybody else? I can't take the vaccines. I am allergic.

I don't find it scary. It actually good. As you can see, virus tends to mutate and there is a tendency that the old vaccine may not work anymore for this type of strain. So, that is a welcome news. How did you find out that you are allergic of the vaccine? Maybe this new one is of different kind and you are not allergic with it. Well the best thing would be is for you to check it out. Goodluck

How did you find out you were allergic ? did you take it and have a bad reaction ? and how did you get rid of the reaction if so.. doesn't it stay in your body a really long time ?? I very curious tonight! I have never taken the flu shot, I could have gotten it for free with my job this year, but being pregnant you can't take it.
