I know of two (DOS) programs that can do that:
1. predict.exe
2. sqaid381.exe
both available from felix.embl-heidelberg.de:/pub/software/dos
Both estimate the antigenicity according to
* Welling et al. 1985, FEBS Lett. 188:215-218 *

predict draws nice graphics, but needs a plotter; seqaid is a great
DNA and protein analysis tool that draws the data as asteriscs, but
can save the raw data to a file, and you can easily use a plotting program
like gnuplot or xmgr (maybe some windows programs can handle these data,
Give it a try...
