Are you worried about heavy metals in vaccines?
Which Vaccines Contain Heavy Metals?
Believe it or not, your kids aren’t going to be exposed to any heavy metals when they get their routine vaccines.
The closest that they might come would be getting a flu vaccine with thimerosal, as mercury is indeed a heavy metal and thimerosal breaks down to ethylmercury. But then, the great majority of flu vaccines are now thimerosal-free, so they probably won’t.
Even if they did, it is important to note that thimerosal was removed from vaccines as a precaution, not because it was toxic.
What about aluminum?
It is no secret that many vaccines contain aluminum.
“Aluminum is a heavy metal with known neurotoxic effects on human and animal nervous systems. It can be found in the following childhood vaccines – DTaP, Pediarix (DTaP-Hepatitis B-Polio combination), Pentacel (DTaP-HIB-Polio combination), Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae B (HIB), Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), and Pneumococcal vaccines.”
NVIC on Aluminum and Vaccine Ingredients: What Do We Know? What Don’t We Know?
Do you know what we know about aluminum?
It isn’t a heavy metal.
Heavy metals include copper, gold, iron, lead, mercury, platinum, plutonium, silver, tin, and zinc.
Aluminum is classified as a light metal. Other light metals are calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium.
I guess that it makes aluminum sound scarier if you say it is a heavy metal though…
It also make it sound scary if you imply that the aluminum salts in vaccines are neurotoxic. They aren’t.
But what about the idea that vaccines are contaminated with heavy metals?
“Metals including toxic lead contaminate virtually all aluminum adjuvants, a widely-used ingredient of human and animal vaccines, according to a recent study published in the leading journal of the vaccine industry.”
CMSRI on Lead, Iron, Chromium and Other Metals Routinely Contaminate Vaccine Adjuvants, Industry Study Reports
While that was the CMSRI takeaway from the study, Influence of elemental impurities in aluminum hydroxide adjuvant on the stability of inactivated Japanese Encephalitis vaccine, IXIARO, if you actually read it, you find that they found that “all aluminum hydroxide lots examined in this study met” safety guidelines from European agencies (Ph. Eur. 2.4.8) and the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP 231).
And many folks think that a study ‘finding’ contamination by a few Italian scientists, New Quality-Control Investigations on Vaccines: Micro- and Nanocontamination, actually found “that vaccines are incredibly pure.”
Vaccines are safe and necessary.
Don’t let folks scare you from vaccinating and protecting your kids by making you think they contain heavy metals or anything other “toxin.”

Your alternative facts betray your financial ties to the extremely profitable vaccine industry. Try science rather than dogma.
Post your science here please
Well this post seems like Excuses, more than explanation… it does not matter if aluminum is heavy or light it’s still bad for organism…
I guess yoiu ignored the “adjuvant” part, huh…
That is not what this article says at all. You have NO scientific evidence for your claim. Do you have any idea how minuscule this amount is? And only once or twice a year> Or a few times in early childhood? You have much more aluminum in your deodorant and cooking agents.
Great phrase, “light metal.” Please inject yourself with any and all vaccines that have nano-aluminum. Do it over, and over, and over … just to be safe.
Some recent studies are now proving that Aluminium is in some forms a neurotoxin when injected into muscle, it bypasses the blood brain barrier, which is exactly the mode of delivery of a vaccine. Anyone who tells you otherwise or reacts inappropriately has a vested interest in selling the product or has been brainwashed ie. most of the allopathic medical community, by the special interests behind this insanity. User beware!
No, my interest is that my adult child has never had many on the list of terrible diseases, nor have I In fact, if it were not for the pneumonia vaccine. which I get every five years, I would likely be dead. That’s evidence enough for me. And you should be thankful that you do not live in a world of these horrible diseases as people in the past have. You take for granted all you have due to vaccines. A good physician will used combined therapies, when called for. Vaccines have saved us and our children from unimaginable suffering. Lastly, you cite no evidence for your claim. Many an otherwise healthy person has died from small pox, polio, tuberculosis, influenza, inherent immune deficiencies (and don’t even go there because you know zero about the human immune system. I am all for anti-vivisection, but we are a long ways off from that. Perhaps you could present some facts to go with your accusations. I am a vegan who has lived a very healthy life style before my immune deficiency was discovered as I got older. This is beyond a person’s control. You know nothing about the immune system. For now, this is what we have. I do not regret for one second that I had given my child its full panel of vaccinations.
A vegan claiming to know anything about health. lol
