One thing in the article may change

re: Minute traces of egg protein in the vaccine could trigger an allergic reaction.

I heard they were going to get away from using eggs:

That may change someday, as leading vaccine manufacturers explore the possibility of trading their chicken eggs for stainless-steel culture vats and growing their flu virus in cell lines derived from humans, monkeys or dogs. The technology could allow companies to produce their vaccines in a more timely and less laborious manner and to respond more quickly in an emergency.

Then, people would only be able to use the vaccine if they werent allergic to monkeys, dogs, or people. Happy
