MR  (Eolarix, 1994)
"Eolarix is contra-indicated in subjects with known systemic hypersensivity to neomycin.
        As with all injectable vaccines, appropriate medical treatment should always be readily avail able in cases of rare anaphylactic reactions following the administration of the vaccine.
        Side effects........ In a very few subjects convulsions may accompany the fever. Rarely, transient erthralgia and arthritis with or without effusion may occur. Immediate allergic-type reactions have been reported rarely.....Rarely, transient polyneuropathy, encephalitis or thrombocytopenic purpura could occur. Reactions at the site of injection are rare and usually mild.  There have been very rare reports of both Guillain-Barre syndrome, hemiplegia and retrobulbar neuritis. There have been isolated reports of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE). The reported rate is less than the frequency associated with natural measles."---Eolarix

"In egg-sensitive children, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccination may cause acute allergic reactions; therefore....we recommend that egg-allergic children should continue to have cutaneous tests done to the MMR vaccine and careful observation during desensitization in those children with positive skin tests."--- Trotter AC, et al (1994) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/htbin-post/Entrez/query?uid=8291745&form=6&db=m&Dopt=b
