Egg Allergies?

You can still get the H1N1 vaccination even if you have egg allergies, says Dr. Peter Smith of Allergy Partners of Fredericksburg. An egg allergy can be a contraindication for the H1N1 vaccination, but with the proper precautions it is still possible to protect yourself and your family. Be sure to see an allergist for your vaccination. The allergist will do a skin test to see if you are still sensitive to eggs. If you are, the doctor can use a graded dose protocol--from two or five small amounts of vaccination given over an hour while you are monitored closely. Dr. Smith urges the community to try to get the vaccine if possible. Don't let an egg allergy stop you!

HistoryCamp

If Pouches' experience at History Camp is any indication, your son or daughter will enjoy joining Washington Heritage Museums and the George Washington Foundation for History Camp in Fredericksburg. The week-long day camp will be held June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Young historians discover American history with hands-on experiences as they walk in the footsteps where the history of Fredericksburg, and a budding America, was created. The camp complements the history taught in classrooms with activities such as soap making, code breaking, colonial crafts, penmanship and much more.
