The following is information concerning each vaccine routinely recommended for administration for children, their corresponding ingredients, a study providing an example of the health hazards attendant, and a brief explanation.
Hepatitis B Vaccine
Ingredients: yeast protein, soy peptone, dextrose, amino acids, mineral salts, alum (potassium aluminum sulfate), amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, formaldehyde
Relevant information implicating Hepatitis B Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Autoimmune hazards of hepatitis B vaccine. Autoimmun Rev, 2005
A review is made of data suggesting that HBV is remarkable by the frequency, the severity and the variety of its complications, some of them related to a mechanism of molecular mimicry leading to demyelinating diseases.
Explanation: The Hepatitis B vaccine contains 250 micrograms of aluminum per dose. As explained, in the “Vaccine ingredients” section of the website, aluminum has been implicated in numerous health hazards in the biomedical literature. The above study on Hepatitis B vaccine is one of many examples from the medical literature underscoring the potential for autoimmunity to arise after Hepatitis B vaccination. Hepatitis B is not a communicable illness. Risk of infection is increased via unprotected sex with multiple partners, or sharing IV needles. Thus, vaccination with Hepatitis B would not contribute to the so-called herd/community immunity.
Hepatitis A Vaccine
Ingredients: aluminum hydroxide, amino acid supplement, polysorbate 20, formaldehyde, neomycin sulfate, phosphate buffered saline, MRC-5 cellular proteins, aminoglycoside antibiotic
Relevant information implicating Hepatitis A Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: Hepatitis A vaccine contains 200-250 micrograms of aluminum per dose. Further, it is contaminated with human fetal DNA fragments and proteins. These are favorable conditions for inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. Transmission is typically via the fecal-oral route. In other words, this is a non-communicable illness that would have no bearing on “herd immunity.”
Diphtheria, Tetanus, Acellular Pertussis Vaccine (DTaP)
Relevant information implicating DTaP Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: DTaP vaccines contain anywhere from 170-625 micrograms of aluminum. The vaccine has been implicated in increasing allergy, asthma, eczema related disorders. Further, studies show that while the vaccine can occasionally suppress the physical symptoms of pertussis, it does not prevent infection and transmission. It can also increase the chance of contracting other, more lethal strains. So, the “cocooning” that is often propagandized regarding parents/grandparents receiving this vaccine and protecting young children/infants is false. One will be doing children a disservice through receipt of this vaccine. The diphtheria and tetanus components of the vaccine are designed for the individual (toxin mediated). So, the DTaP has no contribution to “herd immunity.”
Haemophilus influenza B Vaccine (Hib)
Ingredients: ammonium sulfate, Modified Mueller and Miller medium, saline diluent, formaldehyde, casein derivatives, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, sodium chloride
Relevant information implicating Hib Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: Hib vaccines contain 225 micrograms of aluminum per dose. The above study discusses cases of bacterial meningitis caused by the Hib vaccine. This is another dangerous vaccine. Transmission of Hib can be through respiratory droplets, but there is no evidence that this vaccine has been able to prevent transmission.
Pneumococcal Vaccine (PCV)
Ingredients: soy peptone broth, casamino acids and yeast extract-based medium, ammonium sulfate, CRM 197, Polysorbate 80, succinate buffer, aluminum (as aluminum phosphate adjuvant)
Relevant information implicating PCV Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: PCV contains 125 micrograms of aluminum. It has been shown to cause increased risk of febrile seizures, among many other health issues. Transmission of Pneumococcal disease can be through respiratory droplets, but there is no evidence that this vaccine has been able to prevent transmission.
Ingredients: factor H binding protein (fHbp), Outer Membrane Vesicles (OMV), aluminum hydroxide, sodium chloride, histidine, sucrose, Escherichia coli (E. coli), deoxycholate, formaldehyde, sodium phosphate buffered isotonic sodium chloride solution, *some formulations contain thimerosal, depending upon manufacturer
Relevant information implicating Meningococcal Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Snippet of adverse events from the manufacturer’s insert
Infants and children (up to 10 years of age)
Metabolism and nutrition disorders Very common: eating disorders
Nervous system disorders
Very common: sleepiness, unusual crying Uncommon: seizures (including febrile seizures)
Uncommon: pallor (rare after booster) Rare: Kawasaki syndrome
Very common: diarrhea, vomiting (uncommon after booster)
Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders
Very common: rash (uncommon after booster) Uncommon: eczema, urticarial
General disorders and administration site conditions
Very common: fever (=38°C), injection site tenderness (including severe injection site tenderness defined as crying when injected limb is moved), injection site erythema, injection site swelling, injection site induration, irritability
Uncommon: fever (=40°C)
Adolescents (from 11 years of age) and adults
Nervous system disorders Very common: headache
Gastrointestinal disorders Very common: nausea
General disorders and administration site conditions
Very common: injection site pain (including severe injection site pain defined as unable to perform normal daily activity), injection site swelling, injection site induration, injection site erythema, malaise
Musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders Very common: myalgia, arthralgia
Explanation: Meningococcal Vaccine typically contains aluminum, Polysorbate 80, and in some cases, thimerosal. As noted on the vaccine ingredients page, this combination of ingredients can be cumulative and synergistic in their toxicity. Meningococcal disease is primarily transmitted via saliva or spit. This is a non-communicable illness and thus has no bearing on “herd immunity.”
Measles, Mumps, Rubella Vaccine (MMR)
Ingredients: chick embryo cell culture, WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts, MRC-5 cells, bovine serum, recombinant human albumin, sucrose, hydrolyzed gelatin, urea (refrigerator stable formulation only), sodium chloride, sorbitol, monosodium L-glutamate, sodium phosphate, recombinant human albumin, sodium bicarbonate, potassium phosphate, potassium chloride, components of MRC-5 cells (including DNA and protein), neomycin, bovine serum albumin, other buffer and media ingredients, sodium phosphate dibasic (frozen formulation only), potassium phosphate monobasic (frozen formulation only), potassium phosphate dibasic (frozen formulation only)
Relevant information implicating MMR Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: MMR vaccine can increase the risk for seizures, among numerous other health disorders. Like Hepatitis A vaccine, MMR vaccine is cultured on human fetal cells, which carry significant risks for autoimmunity. Measles, mumps, and rubella are communicable illnesses. Mumps and rubella are benign illnesses. Measles is benign in the first world due to proper nourishment. Outbreaks of measles and mumps occur in vaccinated areas; the vaccine doesn’t produce herd immunity. Atypical measles can occur in the vaccinated. There is an ongoing lawsuit against Merck for falsification of its mumps efficacy.
Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine
Ingredients: human embryonic lung cell cultures, embryonic guinea pig cell cultures, WI-38 human diploid cell cultures, MRC-5 human diploid cell cultures, sucrose, phosphate, glutamate, processed gelatin, urea (refrigerated vaccine only), sucrose, hydrolyzed gelatin, urea (refrigerated vaccine only), sodium chloride, monosodium L-glutamate, sodium phosphate dibasic, potassium phosphate monobasic, potassium chloride, components of MRC-5 cells (DNA, protein), neomycin, bovine calf serum, sodium phosphate monobasic, EDTA, fetal bovine serum
Relevant information implicating Varicella Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: Like the MMR and Hepatitis A vaccines, Varicella is cultured on human cells, which carry significant risks as alluded to above. Varicella vaccination has been shown to increase the incidence of shingles, especially in the adolescent and adult populations. Atypical chickenpox can occur in the vaccinated. It doesn’t create herd immunity.
Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV)
Ingredients: Vero cells, Eagle MEM modified medium, newborn calf serum, M-199 (without calf serum), 2-phenoxyethanol, formaldehyde, neomycin, streptomycin, polymyxin B, calf bovine serum albumin
Relevant information implicating IP Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: As discussed in the WHO link, the IPV is not effective in preventing the transmission of wild polio virus.
Human Papilloma Virus Vaccine (HPV)
Ingredients: yeast protein, vitamins, amino acids, mineral salts, carbohydrates, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, aluminum-containing adjuvant, L-histidine, polysorbate 80, sodium borate, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate adjuvant, sodium chloride, yeast protein, water
Relevant information implicating HPV Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: HPV Vaccine contains 250-500 micrograms of aluminum – a dangerously high amount for injection. It’s been implicated in numerous health hazards, including neurological events, autoimmunity, and paralysis. The above website, “sanevax,” contains a litany of real stories of HPV/Gardasil injury/death. HPV is a non-communicable illness; it’s transmitted sexually, and passed naturally within 2 years for at least 90% of people. HPV vaccine has not been proven to prevent cancer. Further, HPV is only one of numerous possible causes of cervical cancer (even this, has not been definitely proven). Recent information has arisen that suggests that the HPV vaccine actually increases one’s risk of cervical cancer in individuals previously exposed to HPV. HPV has no bearing on herd immunity.
Ingredients: beta-propiolactone, sodium taurodeoxycholate, allantoic fluid of embryonated chicken eggs, sucrose density agent, phosphate buffered isotonic solution, thimerosal (multi-dose vials only), monobasic sodium phosphate, dibasic sodium phosphate, monobasic potassium phosphate, potassium chloride, calcium chloride, sodium taurodeoxycholate, neomycin sulfate, polymyxin B, ovalbumin, mercury, sodium, chloride, beta-propiolactone, sucrose
Relevant information implicating Influenza Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: Influenza vaccines, depending upon which one you receive, can contain thimerosal, and polysorbate 80. They are often cultured on egg proteins, dog cells, or insect cells. The above link describes a case report of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis following influenza vaccination. Influenza vaccines are notoriously ineffective and can make one more susceptible to lethal flu strains, and flu in the subsequent year.
Travel Vaccine: Yellow fever vaccine
Ingredients: living avian leukosis virus-free (ALV-free) chicken embryos, sorbitol, gelatin, sterile diluent (sodium chloride)
Relevant information implicating Yellow Fever Vaccine in Health Hazards:
Explanation: Yellow fever vaccine is a live-attenuated vaccine cultured on chicken embryos. The above study discusses its correlation with autoimmunity.
