Is squalene really the “dirty little secret” in our flu vaccines?
Of course not.
For one thing, squalene, an adjuvant, isn’t even used in vaccines in the United States. That’s easy to figure out when you look at the package inserts for our vaccines, the presence of which would make it hard to keep an ingredient like squalene a secret anyway.
