Bad reaction to MMR vaccine. What part?

What type reaction. If a child has a local reaction to the MMR vaccine (a rash where the shot was given), it may be a reaction to the preservatives in the vaccine. A more systemic reaction (involving the whole body) may be a reaction to the egg base of the vaccine. A fever or rash, 7-10 days after vaccine, is a normal reaction to the vaccine which occurs in about 10% of children with no further problems.
