Ds is due his MMR on Wednesday he has an egg allergy. My HV told me the vaccine is made/created on an egg the paediatric Dr confirmed this but said he should be ok.
Naturally I'm worried he could have a reaction. Has anyone else's dc with an egg allergy been ok after the MMR?

One of mine has a life threatening egg allergy. His specialist allergy paediatrician confirmed it was fine for him to get the MMR. He did, with no adverse reactions.

Thanks pet it was the HV that's made me paranoid she told me initially he'd have to have it done at the hospital in case of a reaction then DR said it's fine to have it at the clinic
