Flu Shots

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had a flu shot this week, and the area where the shot was given itched for about 2 days. Others whom I work with who also had the shot did not have this reaction.

I am wondering if the flu shots this year have some kind of wheat or gluten in the preservative they used.

Does anyone know?

Taking a flu shot via injection is not cause for concern regarding any gluten. You have to ingest it into your GI tract for it to be an issue

and cause a Celiac reaction.

Itching from an injection is not uncommon. Some may experience zero symptoms while others will have minor irritation. If the itching has stopped, I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

I agree with Gemini. Gluten & wheat are not involved in the influenza immunization manufacturing process.
