The Vaccine Mom Explains: Is the Aluminum Used in Some Vaccines Safe?
Sep 24, 2020

Taryn (aka “The Vaccine Mom”) explains why aluminum is in certain vaccines and what research shows about its safety. 

The small amount of aluminum salts in some vaccines helps stimulate the immune system, making the vaccines more effective. These aluminum salts — known as “adjuvants” — have been used in vaccines since the 1930s, and over 80 years of data continue to show using aluminum in vaccines is safe.

The fact is, we actually take in aluminum all the time. It is commonly found in food and health-and food-related products. It’s even found in breast milk and baby formula! And because it’s everywhere, our bodies know how to process it. While high doses of aluminum over a long period of time can be harmful, the incredibly small amount found in vaccines is easy for bodies to manage, even when we are infants.

What’s more, because aluminum adjuvants make vaccines more effective and reduce the number of vaccine doses we need for disease prevention, using them can actually lower a child’s chances overall of experiencing side effects following vaccination. That means not only is aluminum safe when used in vaccines, but it can also make vaccination safer and more effective for our kids.

  1. I like your suggestion to teach our child how vaccinations help others so they have a reason to endure the pain. I want to find a pediatric care clinic in my area where I can start taking my son for vaccinations for peace of mind about his health. Thanks for teaching me these helpful tips and tricks for having a good conversation with my son about vaccinations.
