What are the contraindications to the influenza vaccine? Evidence-Based Answer: Low-albumin, seasonal trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV) appears safe for patients with egg allergies (SOR: B, RCT and case series). It also appears safe for patients with a history of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) (SOR: C, retrospective cohort trial). Immunocompromised patients also benefit from influenza vaccination and generally the vaccination is well tolerated (SOR: A, systemic review of RCTs)
