The Disgusting Stuff in Flu Shots – Vaxxter
Prior to filling the vials with the vaccine solution, the following list of ingredients are added. Different flu shots contain different types and amounts of particulate matter. Even the amount of HA viral antigen can vary, from only 15 mcg in Fluad to 135 mcg in FluBlok. Unless you read specific package insert for the specific injection you (or your children) are about to receive, you won’t know what’s coming through that needle:
Chicken proteins – disgusting chicken stuff in vaccines
Avian (stealth) viruses – retroviruses from the SPF-eggs
Chemicals and buffers
Beta-propiolactone – known to be mutagenic and possibly carcinogenic too.
Formaldehyde – a known carcinogen
Triton X-100 – a detergent
Hydrocortisone – in the culture medium
MSG – in FluMist – this chemical goes up your nose!
Polysorbate 80 – can cause infertility; can also cross the blood-brain barrier
Sucrose – makes the vaccine more viscous
Synthetic Vitamin E – highly inflammatory adjuvant
Gelatin – known to cause anaphylaxis
Thimerosal – mercury – 25 mcg per dose when given from a multi-dose vial
Each of the ingredients listed above have the potential for causing serious side effects that will be discussed in detail in future releases of this series.
