Is an egg allergy a contraindication to the MMR vaccine?

“Several studies have documented the safety of measles and mumps vaccine (which are grown in chick embryo tissue culture) in children with severe egg allergy.

ACIP recommends routine vaccination of egg-allergic children without the use of special protocols or desensitization procedures.”
