Polio Vaccine and egg allergies

Hi there

My boyfriend is now 28 and has never had the polio vaccine due to an egg allergy since childhood. Is there any way he can get the shot without an allergic reaction?

Thanks so much

Hallo Bianca
People that are allergic to eggs may get allergic reactions to the flu injections, yellow fever and MMR but usually not to the modern polio vaccines. He should maybe have himself tested to see if he is very allergic to eggs?
