Ask your pediatrician to show you the vaccine insert, or you could probably find it online pretty easily. I'd look for you, but I'm on my iPhone right now so I can't copy/paste links. It shouldn't be hard to find though.

*edit* I did a bit of googling, and according to the package insert, the vaccine contains 1500 mcg of aluminum phosphate, which according to the sources I found (including Dr. Sears) translates to 330 mcg of actual aluminum when broken down. As to what amount is "safe" I do not know and suspect you will get wildly different answers depending on who you ask. Hopefully that answered your question about how much aluminum is in of though, it seems there are many parents out there with the same question.
