Maybe: It depends on the allergy. If one is allergic to any component of the vaccine, then that child may not be able to receive the second dose - specifically contraindicated are allergy to neomycin, gelatin or sever allergic reaction to 1st mmr. Egg allergy, even anaphylactic is not contraindication to getting MMR or flu shot per the aap and the cdc. Mmr does not contain aluminum!
