Are you allergic to eggs? or anything possibly that's in the vaccine?

Nope not eggs.. but idk what else is in it :( i've gotten one 2 years ago when i was pregnant bc it was kinda forced.. decided to not get one last year but was already at the dr. this year so figured why not..

There's a few different types, so you'll need to know what was given. Did you have to fill out a vaccine consent form asking if you were allergic to anything?
Call your doctors office and let them know too that you're having this reaction.

I think it's normal. Mine itched and even was a little red and swollen for a few days.I got the vaccine without some kind of additive or preservative in it...it's for pregnant girl.
