CORPUS CHRISTI - For the first time ever people with serious egg allergies will be able to get the flu vaccine. The vaccines are normally developed using the protein in eggs, but thanks to some new technology, doctors and researchers have been able to develop something that's available to everyone.
The only catch is that it may only be available to a select number of people.
"I think it will be hard to find in the nation and probably what they'll do is take people that are at very high risk for influenza that they previously haven't been able to vaccinate," says Dr. James Mobley of the San Patricio County Health Department.
The shot was approved in November and just hit the market in a limited supply.
