My year-old recently had a reaction to peanut butter. Are more kids are getting peanut allergies because of vaccines?

A.

Typical childhood vaccines do not have peanut allergen in them. I am cautious with the flu vaccine for those that are egg allergic, but most of the time the vaccine can still be given in that case, as well.
