Which Vaccines Are Vegan

The rabies vaccine is made with gelatin. Are you going to skip it if your vegan child is bit by a rabid dog?

Vegans do not eat meat, fish, poultry, etc., and also do not use animal products or their by-products.

So in addition to eating a plant-based diet, like vegetarians, you also don’t eat eggs or cheese, drink milk, or wear leather, etc.

Are Vaccines Vegan?

Since many vaccines contain some ingredients, like gelatin, that are derived from animals, they aren’t considered to be vegan.

Still, since there aren’t many vegan vaccines, it isn’t possible or practical to avoid getting vaccinated, so most vegans do seem to get their families vaccinated and protected against vaccine-preventable diseases.

Although people argue both ways, you should consider that:

  • many medicines, like Tamiflu, aren’t vegan, so what happens if you get sick with a vaccine-preventable disease?
  • many of the ingredients in vaccines that aren’t considered to be vegan are removed in final processing and aren’t present in the final vaccine, except in residual amounts
  • vaccines save lives, both human lives and animal lives
  • if you are not vaccinated and you get sick, you put others at risk for getting sick too

And mostly understand that just like people abuse religious exemptions and medical exemptions, many vegans don’t vaccinate solely because they are against vaccines.

So are any vaccines really vegan?

A newer flu vaccine, FluBlok uses insect cell lines and is grown in serum-free medium.

Which means poisoning Us and our Precious Innocent Healthy Babies (In the womb & Just New Born). I Say We Continue to Read Lables,ingredients, and Trsearch who is approving these Hybrid Chemically grown Lab 🐀 rat/insect Vaccinations. And maintain Integrity, Common Sense, Humanity & Honesty as we Teach & PROTECT OUR CHILDREN FROM.
      THESE Walking Dead/Frankenstein vaccs.

      1. An Educated Person

        Would you rather they experiment on human beings? And just so you know you aren’t an educated anything if you truly believe such stupid myths.

      2. Newsflash, “Educated” Person, they ARE experimenting on human beings. We are the long term studies. 1 in 36. 54% of our children have chronic disease. Over 4 billion taxpayer dollars given out for injuries. We need to pump the breaks.

    2. Listen mom do your research look up FDA CDC the health Ranger and then look up a very intelligent man named dr. Sebi he has helped to heal cure millions of people from across the Earth from this eases an illness is do not allow anyone 2 Poison your body or your child with toxics that will only cause cancer cells if you resort to those type of needles and drugs you are putting down your guard you should look into Dr sebi and alkaline lifestyle food groceries herbal medicines for your sake and your children/Family!!! Its a big buisness to sell chemicals. . . be a Smart Vegan. And get an exempt for & Research. Veganism i
      Means No to Vaccs/poosen/AdHd learning disabilities, etc.

    3. You need to watch vaccines revealed episode one get deeper into vaccine safety which pro vaccine and ant should agree on… fight for scientific studies that use accurat placebo and control groups vaccine companies can not be sued for faulty design.. why not? They cleave zero incentive to follow the rules.. things are fast tracked and old vaccines and rabbit. Blood or trial vaccines are used as the placebo.. which is fraud. Be informed both sides people!!

    4. All vaccines contain either human or animal cells. Unborn babies and live animals were killed for every vaccine. No way are vaccines vegan.

  1. “A newer flu vaccine, FluBlok, definitely is. It is produced using an insect cell line and grown in serum-free medium.”

    If it’s using a inset cell then how is it “definitely Vegan”? I think you have the terms “Vegetarian” and “Vegan” mixed up.

  2. This is a joke you can’t be vegan and pro vaccine. There is so much cow serum in vaccines and poor baby cows are slawdered in the process. It’s inhumane.

    1. Who cares wither it is vegan or not? Vaccines are the reason why you’re fucking alive, although i think we can all agree that it was nothing but a waste on you as it is clear that you still think like a 4 year old which is about the age you would have died without vaccines. Instead of looking up negative stuff on vaccines, look up what are the benefits of vaccines and read at least one REAL article. By not vaccinating your kids, you are putting other who cannot have vaccines because of medical reasons or kids who haven’t gotten them yet in danger. Vaccine do not cause autism. You are either born with autism or not, nothing can make a non-autistic person autistic. Vaccines are also not a myth made by big pharma for money, they were created to protect people and in many places are free. Thanks to anti-vaxxers my old middle and high school had a measles out break because the parents refused to vaccinate their kid and he got a bunch of people infected after coming back from a trip to mexico. Even some of the teachers got infected (two of them had problems in their immune system making them unable to get access to vaccinations. Vaccines don’t make your immune system weaker, it does the complete opposite in fact. Most vaccines contain a SAFE version of the virus allowing your body to learn how to fight it off and therefore making your immune system much more capable to protect itself next time. The percentage of child death has dropped extremely low ever since vaccines were created and that is not a coincidence. Please educate yourself before spreading false rumors on the internet.

  3. Thank You Please Say it Again. These People can not be😱 gullable😨, lacking Sense that you Will Trust A corporation thats job os to sell u a Shot/needle 💉😢👶😷😵😈 to You & Your Babies/Child… Side Effects…Autism is rinnong rampid whithin the last 2 Decades…No to Human Slavery, Racism, & Animal 🐗🐭🐰🐤🐷🐮Slavery!!! And Hell No to Cannibalism/Vaccs. Have Tons of Chemicals & animal strands. So many Learning disabilities had a host; came from somewhere…

    1. I wish my vegan daughter would listen to you she’s moved out to live with her solid pro-vaccine mobwuestions asked fathers mother ( nana) and won’t even discuss the HPV alone do you have any good sources I could point her too?

    2. Autism is not vaccine related. The man who published that study was forced to retract it when it was revealed he lied about his data. He had no data proving this. Dozens of further studies were done, all a waste of money and time, seeking to corroborate his fraudulent findings. The rise in autism seems to have more to do with a general rise in environmental toxin exposure, mainly from overconsumption of meat and animal.products from exposed animals. The only real issues with vaccines are the rare allergies to ingredients (I, for instance, am allergic to thimerosal), or severe immune overreactions leading to death. Compare the few deaths from vaccines to the billions of lives saved. Please stop posting in ignorance. Take college classes in Human Immunology, and Virology, and Genetics, as I did. I’m living with HIV, over 21 years undetectable, thanks to medications, and have had every vaccine remotely necessary. My anecdotal proof is meaningless, but still. Perhaps if you understood more by talking to actual people who are like you, only better educated, you’d gain perspective.

  4. “A newer flu vaccine, FluBlok, definitely is. It is produced using an insect cell line and grown in serum-free medium.”

    While I am pro-vaccination, this statement is beyond ignorant. Insects are animals. That means this vaccine is no more vegan than those using cow serum, or produced in chicken eggs. Please make a note of this and change your otherwise factually correct page. Thank you.

  5. So relieved that people recognize that caterpillar vaccines are not vegan. They only made FluBlok for people with egg allergies which this article doesn’t even mention. There is also no mention of the need for better alternatives.
