Vaccines can contain aluminium, mercury, formaldehyde, antibiotics, yeast, GMOs, animal proteins, animal DNA fragments, and other substances that are potentially dangerous when injected.
Usually vaccines are injected into muscle, where they form a slow-release reservoir intended to stimulate the production of antibodies for some time. The ingredients are not simply flushed out like they might be if taken in as food, and some ingredients such as aluminium and mercury make their way to the brain and accumulate over time.
Aluminium and mercury
Aluminium, in the form of compounds, is added to many vaccines to help stimulate an immune response to the disease pathogens in these vaccines, because the pathogens do not cause enough inflammation on their own to raise antibodies.
The problem is that the aluminium also stimulates an immune response to everything else in the injection site reservoir, including to animal and food proteins in the vaccine, and also to any fragments of the person’s skin, muscle and blood that may have entered from damage by the needle.
Thus there can be an immune response to all of these – this is thought to be a factor in the epidemic of immune system problems, such as asthma, allergies, eczema and autoimmune diseases. Aluminium in vaccines is also thought to be a factor in neurological problems, due to it accumulating in the brain over time.
Mercury is used in vaccines as the preservative ethyl mercury, a water soluble and very toxic form of mercury, which was developed in the 1920s to prevent vaccines from “going off” in the vial. Ethyl mercury is variously called Thimerosal, Merthiolate and Thiomersal.
Ethyl mercury has been been taken out of most vaccines – it is still in multi-dose flu vaccine vials and is found in residual amounts in some others. Mercury in vaccines is thought to be a factor in neurological problems.
The elements aluminium and mercury are both classified as metals, and they are not in metallic form in vaccines. Mercury is known as a “heavy metal”, while aluminium is not.
The following page from the CDC (US gov’t) has a list of vaccines and their ingredients:

Please see this excellent analysis of the information:

Animal and food molecules in vaccines
Viruses can only multiply inside living cells, so viruses used in vaccine production are grown in animal cells kept alive in laboratories. Bacteria for vaccines are grown on animal products, and designer proteins in vaccines can be generated in yeast, bacteria or other living cells.
Cells and products from a variety of species are used, including humans (aborted fetuses), monkey (kidney), cow (heart), calf (serum), chicken (embryo and egg), duck (egg), pig (blood), sheep (blood), dog (kidney), horse (blood), rabbit (brain), and guinea pig.
Fragments of DNA and proteins from animals are used deliberately in some vaccines, as adjuvants, and they can also make their way accidentally into the vaccines. In both cases these fragments have been linked to many disease conditions.
Also, manufacturers are not required to declare some vaccine ingredients if they are safe as food, such as nut oils, and these have been linked to food allergies.
For more information please see the following articles, and also read Heather Fraser’s excellent book The Peanut Allergy Epidemic: What’s Causing It and How to Stop It (be sure to get the second edition):
This excerpt from the ingredients list highlights aborted human fetal tissue in some of the vaccines:
A look at a common infant vaccine, Infanrix hexa
In Australia infants routinely receive Infanrix hexa at 2, 4 and 6 months of age. A dose has vaccines for 6 diseases. See the Victorian vaccination schedule.
On the Product Monograph for Infanrix hexa, in the ‘Contraindications’ section starting page 4 it says the vaccine “should not be administered to subjects with known hypersensitivity to any component of this vaccine”, and mentions hypersensitivity to the antibiotics it contains.
On pages 23 and 24 are the components of the vaccine dose, including 12.6 mg lactose, 0.7 mg aluminum adjuvants (as aluminum salts), 0.12 mg aluminum (AlPO4), residual formaldehyde, neomycin sulphate (an antibiotic), polymyxin B sulphate (an antibiotic) and up to 5% yeast protein.
How would you know if a young baby might be allergic to any of that? Remember these components are being injected into muscle, not swallowed, touched or breathed in.
Please notice that the safety trial described on page 9 had only 267 subjects, and had only an 8-day follow-up period. Below that is data from 16,000 subjects, with no information whatsoever about how that data was collected. The safety of combination vaccines over time is not studied, and neither is the full vaccination schedule.
In the general population doctors are not required by law to report adverse reactions reported by the parents, and they usually simply don’t.
It is claimed that mercury is no longer included in most vaccines, including Infanrix hexa, but Melbourne researchers have found this vaccine does contain traces of mercury, see:
Mercury in vaccines from the Australian childhood immunization program schedule.
GMOs in vaccines
Here is an article about GMOs and vaccines:
“Many are unaware that, despite the completely unknown long-term health consequences, GM vaccines are already in use and have been administered to American infants, children and adults for many years. Among them:
1. Hepatitis B vaccine: An inactivated recombinant DNA vaccine licensed for newborn infants and children in 1991, in which parts of the hepatitis B virus gene are cloned into yeast
2. Rotavirus vaccine: Live attenuated vaccines first licensed for infants and children licensed in 2006, which either contain genetically engineered human rotavirus strains or human-bovine hybridized reassortment rotavirus strains
3. HPV vaccine (Gardasil or Cervarix): A recombinant vaccine licensed in 2006, which is prepared from virus-like particles (VLP’s) and may also include use of an insect-cell Baculovirus expression vector system for production”
