Babies are getting more than 1,000 micrograms of aluminum in vaccines

“According to the FDA, the maximum aluminum per kilogram of weight to give to a person is up to 5 micrograms. And any product that has more than 25 micrograms of aluminum is supposed to have a warning label stating that ‘aluminum may be toxic to the central nervous system and to the bones.’ However, vaccines, for some reason, are not required to have this label and are not required to follow the maximum dosage of 25 micrograms.

… So, doing some math and following the 5 micrograms per kilogram maximum allowable parenteral dose of aluminum, the following are examples of weight with their corresponding maximum levels of aluminum, per the FDA.

  • An 8-pound baby, 18.16 micrograms of aluminum.
  • 15-pound baby, 34.05 micrograms of aluminum.
  • 30-pound toddler, 68.1 micrograms of aluminum.
  • 50-pound child, 113 micrograms of aluminum.
  • 150-pound adult, 340.5 micrograms of aluminum.
  • 350-pound adult, 794.5 micrograms of aluminum.

So exactly how much aluminum is in the vaccines that are routinely given to children? The Hib vaccine contains 225 micrograms per shot. Hepatitis B contains 250 micrograms per shot. The DTap, depending upon the manufacturer, ranges from 170 to 625 micrograms.

Pneumococcus, 125 micrograms. Hepatitis A, 250 micrograms. HPV, 225 micrograms. The Pentacil, which is DTaP, Hib, and polio combo vaccine, 330 micrograms. And the Pediarix, which is the DTaP, Hep B, and polio combo vaccine, 850 micrograms.

At birth, 99 percent of children in the United States are given the Hepatitis B vaccination. If the baby is typical size, let’s just say that he or she weighs 8 pounds, the amount of aluminum in the Hepatitis B vaccine alone is almost 14 times the amount of aluminum that is FDA approved.

In addition, at well-checkup visits, it’s common for two-month, four-month, six-month appointments to include up to eight vaccinations that add up to more than 1,000 micrograms of aluminum. According to the FDA limits, that amount isn’t even safe for a 350-pound adult.”
