MSG and Vaccines

Yes, monosodium glutamate (MSG) is the additive in Chinese food that some people try to avoid. It is also found naturally in many foods, especially tomatoes, or can be made by fermenting different starches and sugars.

So why is it also found in some of our vaccines?

According to the CDC, MSG is used as a stabilizer “in a few vaccines to help the vaccine remain unchanged when the vaccine is exposed to heat, light, acidity, or humidity.”

MSG is safe in our vaccines and its presence should not be used to scare you away from vaccinating and protecting your kids.
