(Listed in Alphabetical order by Vaccine)

The three main components to every vaccine are the​​ ingredients, the​​ process ingredients​​ and the​​ culture medium.​​ 

  • Vaccine Ingredients – are substances that appear in the final vaccine product 
  • Process​​ Ingredients – are substances used to create the vaccine that may or may not appear in the final vaccine product
  • Culture Media​​ – are the substances used to grow the vaccine culture
  • Though not listed, each vaccine contains strains of the virus being vaccinated against.​​ 
  • To see the manufacturer’s package insert that contains information about dosage, ingredient quantity, and how the vaccine is made, please click on each vaccine’s Trade Name.​​ 
  • Some vaccines, like influenza​​ vaccines, are modified frequently and you may wish to consult the package inserts online and your doctor for the most current information.

The vaccines shown below have been approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and commonly recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

ProductPossible Ingredients
(Ingredients depend on which modification is used.)
2-Phenoxyethanol is a glycol ether used as a preservative in vaccines.

It is a central nervous system depressant.
AluminumAluminum is used in vaccines as an adjuvant, which helps the vaccine work more quickly and more powerfully.

Aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, and aluminum salts – Neurotoxin. Carries risk for long term brain inflammation/swelling, neurological disorders, autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism. It penetrates the brain where it persists indefinitely.
Bovine caseinA casein is a family of phosphoproteins commonly found in mammalian milk. 80% of the proteins in cow’s milk are casein.
Bovine serumBovine “[s]erum is the centrifuged fluid component of either clotted or defibrinated whole blood. Bovine serum comes from blood taken from domestic cattle. Serum from other animals is also collected and processed but bovine serum is processed in the greatest volume.”

“Bovine serum is a by-product of the meat industry. Bovine blood may be taken at the time of slaughter, from adult cattle, calves, very young calves or (when cows that are slaughtered are subsequently found to be pregnant) from bovine​​ fetuses. It is also obtained from what are called ‘donor’ animals, which give blood more than once.

Blood is available from bovine fetuses only because a proportion of female animals that are slaughtered for meat for human consumption are found (often unexpectedly) to be pregnant.

Blood is available from very young calves because calves, especially males from dairy breeds, are often slaughtered soon, but not necessarily immediately, after birth because raising them will not be economically beneficial. Older animals are, of course, slaughtered for meat.

Only donor cattle are raised for the purpose of blood donation. Donor cattle are invariably kept in specialized, controlled herds. Blood is taken from these animals in a very similar way to that used for human blood donation.

Irrespective of whether blood is taken at slaughter or from donors, the age of the animal is an important consideration because it impacts the characteristics of the serum.

Bovine serum is categorized according to the age of the animal from which the blood was collected as follows:
•’Fetal bovine serum’ comes from fetuses
•’Newborn calf serum’ comes from calves less than three weeks old
•’Calf serum’ comes from calves aged between three weeks and 12 months
•’Adult bovine serum’ comes​​ from cattle older than 12 months
Serum processed from donor blood is termed ‘donor bovine serum’. Donor animals can be up to three years old.”
