In brief: See below
Severe reaction to egg(anaphylaxis) is not a contraindication for MMR vaccination.
Mmr can be given safely by utilizing desensitization technique, small diluted dose first with gradual increased dose in multiple shots. Skin test before vaccination is unreliable and is not recommended. Observation for 90 minutes is also suggested.
