My mom is now gonna pay attention at the 'fact' when I learned my stepfather has a allergy to formalhyde and I told her that is in vaccines -she was like who told you that ridcolous notion ? So I need the ingredient lists of vaccines to be specifically from CDC otherwise my mom won't take any other site serious !<br><br>
Full ingredient list

Actually the CDC does have a list of vaccine constituents:<br><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/nip/recs/contraindications.htm#appA" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/nip/recs/contraindications.htm#appA</a><br><br>

Interesting, though you'll note this is a summary and does not contain ALL the ingredients in a given vaccine.<br><br>
thanks for the link though!<br><br>

Here you go - <a href="http://www.vaccinesafety.edu/package_inserts.htm" target="_blank">http://www.vaccinesafety.edu/package_inserts.htm</a><br><br>
The package inserts from the vaccine manufacturers themselves.. Pick the vaccine and click on it to get all the information including the ingredients.<br><br>
Can't argue with that. LOL

I see the ingredient neomycin in a lot of vaccines. On the bottle of neomycin it says "should NEVER be injected".<br><br>
How do they get away with putting it into vaccines?

I found pulling up and reading the ingredient lists for each vax to be a pain, so I put this together. It's a listing of some vaxs and the adjuvants, preservatives, stabilizers, antibiotics, etc that they contain. All the info is from label documentation on file with FDA, and the links will take you to each one. All quantities are per dose. The language (e.g., "residual" or "trace" is from the label. (For non-metric folks, one microgram is one millionth of a gram and one nanogram is one billionth.)<br><br>

Crisstiana, you didn't by any chance note the growth medium for those vaccines, did you? I'd be interested in those as well.....

Hi, Gitti:<br><br>
I don't know the growth media used for the different vaxs, but I'll look into them. (I've seen some mention of media, but I think they are not routinely listed. They should be as growth media are usually listed in research articles that discuss experiments using cell culture, but who knows.) I'm trying to put together a more complete list anyway. Hopefully, it will include all the ingredients (instead of just the adjuvants, stabilizers, preservatives, etc) and more of the vaxes. If I get it finished, I'll post it.

Rotavirus is grown in vero cells.<br>
Measles in chick embryo fibroblast cells.<br>
Mumps is supposedly grown in chick embryo fibroblasts, but I've heard from a very reliable anecdotal source that it's grown in vero cells, too, at some plants.<br>
Rubella's grown in human fetal cells.<br>
Chichenpox in fetal cells, too.<br><br>
Most, if not all, use fetal bovine serum to "feed" the cell lines.<br><br>
ETA...I'm pretty sure this is all listed on the package inserts.

I pulled together the information and will post it tomorrow after I clean it up. The depth of information on media is varied. Some inserts mention specific commercially prepared media, and others are less exact (I'm comparing it to the standards that are generally applied for published articles). I'll try to link it up with the commercial media ingredient lists if I can find them.

I believe the CDC has taken the ingredient list down. I looked through the site and couldn't find it, although I have seen it with my own two eyes. Also, the address for the pink book seems to have changed.<br><br><br>
If someone finds the ingredient list on the CDC website please post it here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

OT: How come we don't hear about right-to-lifers protesting vaccines that are grown in human fetal cells? (I'm referring to right-to-lifers who vaccinate on schedule.)<br><br>

Well, the cell lines are really old. They're from babies aborted almost half a century ago, so it's not like they're needing a continuous supply of new fetuses for production.
