    Default Vaccine ingredient list

    Hi ladies I am desperately trying to get my hands on an Australian vaccine ingredient list but finding it very hard!

    There is absolutely no info on any government sites and when looking up the manufacturers they don't even have the ingredients listed online.

    If anyone has the info I'm after it would be greatly appreciated

    Default Vaccine ingredient list

    http://www.gsk.com.au/products_vaccines.aspx
    This is the company that makes the most popular ones in Australia - just click on the vaccine and it brings up the package insert which does give you the main ingredients, I'm not sure if they legally have to list all ingredients but the main ones are there, plus if they contain egg or bovine for allergies/vegan/religious reasons

    Thanks for that! Thats a great link. I just skimmed through the first one on the list and it seems to be very informative.

    Because it isn't as simple as reading the list of ingredients, most people don't understand the ingredients and what they mean for us in every day life. I am not a scientist so I rely on them to explain what it means. I just googled vaccine ingredients and the stuff that comes up is just ridiculous. But I found this from an American site, very interesting. Particularly the part where it says only 28% of American's are scientifically literate.

    Anyway - it explains about the main ingredients that people get scared about, what they are used for, where they are found naturally etc.

    That is true, but it's a good starting point when you want to know more about vaccinations
