  2. you have a hypersensitivity to eggs (e.g. hives, swelling of mouth and/or throat, breathing difficulty);
  3. you currently have a high fever; or
  4. you have experienced Guillan-Barré Syndrome within eight weeks of receiving a seasonal flu vaccine

If you have had a severe reaction to previous vaccinations, have a bleeding disorder, are taking medication that could affect blood clotting, you should consult a health professional before receiving the vaccine.
