Informed Vaccine Choices Mean Knowing the Ingredients
Here Are Some Ingredients in Current Vaccines

Receiving a vaccination may now mean getting injected with tissues from another human being because some vaccines currently include various fetal cell lines from aborted fetuses, human albumen, genetically engineered human albumen and human DNA.

Some people object to this on the face of it - being injected with human fetal tissue in the first place. Others' protests are based on science, for example, the spike in autism rates when the chicken pox vaccine began containing fetal tissue. Then there are the unknown consequences such as the risk of allergic reactions and autoimmune diseases, and of course, objections based on religious grounds.

The number of vaccines estimated to contain these human cells varies depending on both the source and the number of vaccines taken into account. One estimate suggests that 23 vaccines currently on the market contain these cells. (For example, one list of human tissues used in some vaccines can be found here: http://www.vaccine-tlc.org/human.html).

The following list is offered to support informed choice.

Vaccines that Contain Human Tissue:

Polio: PolioVax, Pentacel, DT Polio Absorbed, Quadracel (Sanofi)

Measles, Mumps, Rubella: MMR II, Meruvax II, MRVax, Biovax, ProQuad, MMR-V (Merck) Priorix, Erolalix (GlaxoSmithKline)

Varicella (Chickenpox and Shingles): Varivax, ProQuad, MMR-V, Zostavax (Merck) Varilix (GlaxoSmithKline)

Hepatitis A: Vaqta (Merck), Havrix, Twinrix (GlaxoSmithKine), Avaxim, Vivaxim , Sanofi), Epaxal (Crucell/Berna)

Rabies: Imovax (Sanofi)

Other Ingredients Found in Some Vaccines:

A listing of all the various ingredients in vaccines is not possible to acquire. There are two main reasons for this.

The first is that manufacturers are not required to report certain ingredients if they exist below a certain threshold. For example, the cumulative neuro-toxin mercury, contained in Thimerisol which is currently an ingredient in the flu shot, is not required to be reported if below the legal threshold.

The other reason is that due to poor checks and balances in the manufacturing process, vaccines may have many contaminants that were not intended to be included in their manufacture, such as other bacteria, for example, a fact some former industry insiders continue to report.

Here, then, is a partial list of some other ingredients found in vaccines:

  thimerosal, polysorbate 80 (Tween-80), ammonium sulfate, formalin,sucrose, lactose, washed sheep red blood cells, continuous line of monkey kidney cells, neomycin, sorbitol, benzethonium chloride, ammonium sulfate, glycerin, a phenol-a compound from coal tar, beta-propiolactone, phosphate buffered saline, 2-phenoxyethenol, soy protein, yeast, sucrose, monosodium glutamate (MSG), aspartame, polydimethylsiloxane (silicone), processed gelatin, fetal bovine serum, guinea pig embryo cells, chick embryo, vesicle fluid from calf skins, rhesus monkey fetal diploid cells, bovine fetal serum, rhesus monkey fetal lung cells, bovine gelatin, serum "from source countries known to be free of bovine spongioform encephalopathy," chicken protein, bovine serum, hydrolized gelatin, chicken embryo, continuous line of monkey kidney cells.

How To Get More Information

As the saying goes, information is power. The better informed you are the better the choices you will be able to make for you and for those dependent on you for their care.

An excellent source of information about vaccines can be found in the package inserts. That said, there are some ingredients that the law does not require to be reported or taken into account if they are below a certain threshold, so even reading the inserts will not tell you everything.

Then, too, it would take a lot of effort to collect and review them all. Happily this job has been taken on and placed online for you.

Last, there is a recent push to force people - especially children - to receive certain vaccinations.  To inform your thinking about this, you may want to know what Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center, says about this, as she has spent her career studying and researching the subject.  Here is her conclusion:

 "If vaccines are safe and effective for everyone, then those, who choose to get vaccinated should have nothing to fear from those who choose not to get vaccinated.

If vaccines are not safe and effective for everyone, then it is unethical to require anyone to get vaccinated without their voluntary, informed consent."
