In brief: Probably yes

A tangelo is a hybrid cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit.
In other words a tangelo is 50% tangerine. If you are allergic to tangerine it would be foolhardy to try your luck with a tangelo. In fact, i would strongly advise caution with all citrus - orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit and kumquat.
