Flu jab

Hi there. I had the flu jab last week. Ever since then I''m getting stomach pains and bloating after eating chicken - can it make you allergic to poultry? Thank you

Hallo Sam
No it won't make you allergic for poultry. It is cultured in eggs but if you were allergic to eggs you will get a rash and reaction at the injection site. The chicken may have been off, causing the stomach symptoms.
