Data for year 2000

Composition of vaccines

The information here originally appeared in, Homeopathy in Practice Journal. The information was taken from manufacturer's data sheets and which are available in the UK at libraries in the Data Sheet Compendium. "I also don't think vegetarians would be keen to vaccinate their children if they knew about the animal derivatives in the vaccines."

[Note: in the USA The Physicians Desk Reference, often found in public libraries, is a good source of information. The vaccines also come with what are called "Package Inserts" which you may ask for from your doctor. Better yet, check our Inserts page for download links to package inserts.]

HAPIHealth
[Independent] Testing Mercury Free Vaccines
Due to the ongoing debate over the role of mercury containing vaccines and autism, HAPI decided to have some current vaccinations tested for mercury content. Our goal in doing so was to simply find out for ourselves whether or not mercury has actually been removed from vaccines intended for pediatric use. We also wanted to generate interest and fund a larger test sample. The results ..
