Vaccine Ingredients

– While health officials recommend an ever increasing number of vaccines for babies and young children, they are less than forthcoming about vaccine ingredients and their potential to injure in the short- or long-term. The very fact these substances are injected rather than judiciously processed through the digestive system reduces their ‘safe’ limit. We all know that mercury is a poison, yet for decades it has been, and to some extent still is, a component of vaccines recommended for injection into you and your children. Even the less toxic ingredients increase risk due to the additive effect. It’s also known there can be synergistic effects between chemicals as well as additive effects of all the toxic substances and radiation our bodies receive. A prime example is the synergy between fluorides and heavy metals which is exacerbated by the ease with which they form complexes. To our knowledge, the only vaccines that contain fluoride are those with gelatin contaminated with fluoride and aluminum. But there are many external sources: water fluoridation, chemical fertilizers, coal burning emissions, dental products, etc. Aluminum is not only in vaccine gelatin but also included in many vaccines as an adjuvant. When aluminum and fluoride combine, the anti-thyroid effects (‘Fluorides and the Impact on Human Health’ VRANewsletter; August 1999; pg 17) of the fluoride are greatly potentiated.

Articles listing ingredients for many of the taxpayer-funded Canadian vaccines can be found in our ‘Specific Vaccines’ section. Product monographs listing vaccine ingredients can be found in the CPS (Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties) index obtainable through any pharmacy in Canada. Some vaccine monographs can also be accessed on line at the manufacturers’ websites. Unfortunately, even the monographs don’t list every ingredient or all the details about the manufacturing process (which may, as is the case with mercury, leave small but still-significant amounts of harmful substances in the finished product). A fourth source of information is Type and Contents of Vaccines Currently Approved for Use in Canada .

Chemical Ingredients

Other Chemical Ingredients These include preservatives, disinfectants, antibiotics, stabilizers, etc. some of which may cause allergic reactions or other toxicity. Note also that the vials containing some vaccines are still sealed with latex stoppers which can be allergenic.

Mercury and Thimerosal in Vaccines Thimerosal, a mercury containing preservative which was widely used but later removed from many pharmaceutical products, lingers on in some vaccines including ones injected into some of the most vulnerable recipients – pregnant women, babies, children and seniors. As of 2011, Canadian vaccines which contain thimerosal as a preservative are […]

Biological Ingredients

(intended and not intended) The biological ingredients intentionally included in vaccines are the lab-altered viruses and bacterial toxins or parts of viruses and bacteria which are meant to produce immunity to infectious diseases. Of particular concern are the live-virus vaccines (MMR, chickenpox vaccine, the combined MMR-chickenpox vaccine and the live-virus influenza nasal vaccine). Equally worrisome […]


Aluminum is a commonly used adjuvant, ie: an ingredient used to provoke a sustained immune response. It’s part of the DPT vaccine which was first widely used in the late 1940s and all current vaccines containing any or all of the D (diphtheria), P (pertussis) and T (tetanus) antigens. The hepatitis B and pneumococcal vaccines […]

Oil-based Adjuvants

Especially significant is the recent use of oil-in-water emulsions as vaccine adjuvants. Their use is increasing and highly risky so we’ve given them their own sub-section. The squalene-based ASO3 adjuvant was used in the Arepanrix™ H1N1 influenza vaccine injected into Canadians during the pandemic of 2009/10. Cervarix™ HPV vaccine contains the oil adjuvant, MPL together […]

Food Allergens

Food allergies can arise due to a leaky gut which allows partially-digested food proteins into the bloodstream. A more direct route is via an injection.   Related VCC Links Related External Links Vaccinations CAUSE Allergies – Barbara Feick Gregory’s Vaccines & Food Allergies Information website Allergens: Peanut Oil, Brewer’s Yeast, and Milk-, Egg- and Soy-Proteins – […]
