The link below is a pdf with tables of current vax and the contents totally disreguard the rest of the article since it was written by Offit But the tables are accurate and recent, 97 is good but the doc may claim that is old news kwim?This is from 'Pediatrics' vol 112 No. 6 December 2003 so very recent.http://pediatrics.aappublications.o.../112/6/1394.pdf
page 2, bottom of page 3,bottom of page 4 lists gelatin content-not horrible but can cause allergic response if someone has allergy to it. Bottom of page 5 lists formaldhyde amounts,6 neoymcin (it sounds like a ton but really if you skip right to the tables it's quick reading).
Need to use the magnifier .
Here is some info I looked up on the ingredients:http://physchem.ox.ac.uk/MSDS/PH/2-phenoxyethanol.html
phenoxyethanol is in the IPV shot,DTaP shot by 2 different brands,HepA, HepB and the HepA,B twinrix combo shot, it is also in pedirix that new 5-in-1 shot.
Quote from that link:
Harmful if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. May cause reproductive defects. Severe eye and skin irritant.
So why is it safe for injection? Even in small amounts I don't see how it is safe. Similar to lead, how is any amount safe in a childs body?
Phenol is in the samonella and phneumovax 23. That one is very toxic.
Aluminum hydroxide isn't as harmful but still listed as an eye or skin irritant.http://physchem.ox.ac.uk/MSDS/AL/aluminium_sulfate.html
Aluminum sulfate is that link above,Harmful by inhalation, ingestion and through skin absorption. May irritate skin. Severe eye irritant
Pediarix contains both al.sulfate and al. phosphate.

Neomycin which is often used in vax:http://www.mold-survivor.com/neomycin.htm
Neomycin is too toxic for parenteral administration and can only be used for infections of the skin or mucous membranes or to reduce the bacterial population of the colon proir to bowel surgery or in hepatitic failure."--BNF 5 (1983)
Parenteral: Entering the body not by the alimentary tract(GI Tract) but rather by another means (such as the subcutaneous, the intramuscular, or often the intravenous route).
from Medterms.com bascially it means by injection so neomycin is too toxic for injection why is it used in vax?? It is used in the MMR, separate Measles, mumps or rubella shots and the rabies shot. Often causes allergic reactions (maybe why my dd had reaction to MMR)
I posted the above in another thread that asked the same question. I hope that link still works it was originally posted in Feb of this year. I can't view PDFs right now, some days I can and some days I can't my pc is wacky.
