Who should not get a flu vaccine: Children younger than 6 months, those with severe, life-threatening allergies to flu vaccine or any ingredient in the vaccine.

This might include gelatine, antibiotics and egg protein (most, but not all, types of flu vaccine contain a small amount of egg). Also not those who've had Guillian-Barre Syndrome or those who are not feeling well.
