Q. My child has peanut allergies. Are there any vaccines that he should not get?
A. None of the routinely recommended vaccines contain peanut oils, so your child does not need to forego any immunizations for this reason. Similarly, we have been asked about corn allergies, and the same is true.
However, gelatin, eggs and latex are allergies that should be considered prior to getting vaccines. Latex is not in vaccines, but it is contained in some of the packaging.
