Abstract

Yellow fever vaccine contains ovalbumin, and guidelines for vaccination of egg allergic patients vary widely. We present our experience of administering yellow fever vaccine to 11 egg-allergic children, including 3 with anaphylaxis to egg, in 2 Australian tertiary pediatric hospitals. There was variation in the vaccination protocols used; however, all patients were successfully vaccinated and no serious adverse events were reported.
