Our quality of life is dependent upon our health. In a world where we are increasingly exposed to toxins and where our experts are increasingly dependent upon industry funding, it is important to know that the information you are receiving is balanced, non-biased and evidence-based.
The ingredients of vaccines are not listed in a comprehensive manner on the Immunise Australia Program (IAP) website. Here is the list of ingredients in Australian vaccines provided by the government in Appendix 3 of the Australian Immunisation Handbook (10th Ed 2018). I have also provided a link to the ingredients/excipients listed in vaccines by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Association for Vaccine Education website.
In most cases Australia uses the same vaccines as the US but they are approved under a different name. Here is a link to a comprehensive list of ingredients from the World Association of Vaccine Education (WAVE) website.
The Adverse events (AE’s) or side-effects of vaccines that have been documented on the package inserts for 70 years include (but are not limited to) – anaphylaxis, acute encephalopathy, chronic and acute arthritis, vasculitis (Kawasaki Disease), shock, death, thrombocytopenia, Guillain-Barre Syndrome (paralysis), pneumonia, meningitis, febrile seizures, hepatitis etc. Please click here for a more detailed list of the 158+ listed side-effects (AE’s) to vaccines.
Whilst the Australian government claimed that the mercury compound Thiomerosal (a 49% mercury compound) was removed from all vaccines by the year 2000 this claim is not true. Mercury compound was still listed in Australian vaccines up until 2013 (Appendix 4 Australian Immunisation Handbook (9th Ed)).
This is significant because the government claimed that thimerosal had been removed from all childhood vaccines by 2000 yet it was still listed in the Hepatitis B vaccine given to infants at birth and the Fluad and Fluarix influenza vaccines until 2013. It was also listed in the Infanrix-hexa vaccine – the new 6 shots in one vaccine in 2010 (Austin et al 2010).
There are many contraindications to vaccines listed on the package inserts and prior to 2015 doctors were required to inform patients of these AE’s that are linked to a persons genetic make-up. Here is an example of the contraindications on the MMR vaccine package insert And here is the warning that doctors are required to give their patients.
It is stated by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that ‘Persons who have received anaphylactic reactions to topically or systematically administered neomyacin should not receive Measles vaccine‘.
However, when mandatory vaccination for children was approved in 2015 the medical exemptions to vaccines (contraindications) were arbitrarily reduced to just one exemption – anaphylaxis – despite our genetic make-up. It has been known since 1913 when Charles Richet won the Nobel Prize for his investigation of vaccines and their link to anaphylaxis that many children will have this reaction due to their genetics.
How do parents know if their new born infant will have an anaphylactic shock to a vaccine? There are many ingredients in vaccines that humans are allergic to and parents will not know how serious the reaction will be until it is too late. This is an experiment on children and parents must maintain the right to make this risk assessment for themselves.
Here are some of the other ingredients that are commonly found in vaccines.
This list includes antibiotics, preservatives and additives and contaminants from the manufacturing process:
Foreign Protein from the Manufacturing Process:
Human Diploid Cells
Chick embryo cells
Fetal Bovine Serum
Re-combinant Human Albumin (rDNA – genetically engineered DNA that is not otherwise found in humans)
Thimerosal (50% mercury compound)
Borax (sodium borate – insecticide)
Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
