In brief: MMR vaccine is safe
The MMR vaccine is safe in children who have an egg allergy.
The risk of an allergic reaction is very low, as the vaccine does not contain significant amounts of egg white proteins (that usually are the cause of egg allergies). The "healthy children" website produced by the american academy of pediatrics has more information on the MMR vaccine and others. www.healthychildren.org.
