3c.17 When is the MMR vaccine contraindicated?

People with an anaphylactic or anaphylactoid allergy to eggs or
neomycin should not get the vaccine. Other allergies or chicken or
feather allergies are not a contraindication. Vaccination should be
deferred in case of fever. The PDR give active untreated tuberculosis
as a contraindication, but the AHFS says that there is no evidence of
a need to worry about TB. Both give immune deficiency as a
contraindication (see PDR for a long list of immune deficiencies
involved). Immune globulin preparation or blood/blood product received
in the preceding 3 months. The same contraindications apply
individually to measles and mumps vaccines, but the rubella vaccine
can be given by itself to people with an anaphylactic egg allergy. The
other contraindications still apply to the rubella vaccine
alone. (California Morbidity, October 31, 1987)

Vaccine components capable of causing adverse reactions: for mumps and
measles, chick fibroblast components; for mump, measles, and rubella,
neomycin (Travel Medicine Advisor).
