Allergy Centre, Hong Kong Sanatorium and Hospital, Happy Valley, Hong Kong.

Vaccination of egg-allergic individuals has been a historical concern, particularly for influenza and measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccines that are developed in chicken egg embryos or chicken cell fibroblasts. The egg proteins in these vaccines were believed to trigger an immediate allergic reaction in egg-allergic individuals. However, recently published international guidelines have updated their recommendations and now state that these vaccines can be safely administered to egg-allergic individuals. This joint consensus statement by the Hong Kong Institute of Allergy and the Hong Kong Society for Paediatric Immunology Allergy & Infectious Diseases summarises the updates and provides recommendations for local general practitioners and paediatricians.
