Doctor's Note

But who eats raw eggs? It's probably more a problem of cross-contamination before they're cooked. See Total Recall. For info on viruses in poultry, see the last three days of videos: EPIC Findings on LymphomaChicken Dioxins, Viruses, or Antibiotics, and Poultry and Penis Cancer. And as always, there are hundreds of other videos on more than a thousand subjects. The retail egg survey is open access, so feel free to download it by clicking on the link above in the Sources Cited section.

    Given this, should we be concerned about getting vaccinations?
    Do you know which vaccines use eggs?

    If you’re concerned about vaccines, when you go for a flu shot or whatever type of vaccine you’re getting they are required to ask you if you are allergic to eggs. Those are the vaccines associated with fertilized chick embryos, I believe. Better to get your vaccines than to put the rest of the public at risk by not getting them, though.
