There is no almond in imitation almond extract. However, as someone with a tree nut allergy, I can tell you that you could swear on a stack of Bibles that it was imitation, but if I smelled almond I wouldn't eat it.
Use vanilla!

Some imitation almond extracts, although they do not contain actual almond, do contain an ingredient that is in the almond family. If so, that might cause an allergic reaction in someone with an almond allergy.
