Making informed decisions on whether or not to vaccinate your child involves weighing the risks of the disease the vaccine prevents with the risks of the vaccination. If this isn’t enough of a challenge, there are often multiple manufacturers for each vaccine, and each medication varies. This episode breaks down each vaccine-preventable disease and looks at the differences in the options for each vaccine. This includes the company that manufacturers each vaccine, when it was approved, and a link to the package insert. The package insert contains everything from the manufacturer, including results from clinical trials, possible side effects and adverse reactions, all ingredients, etc. Since aluminum has been raised as a significant concern, this episode also notes the aluminum content in each vaccine. This episode will help you understand each disease targeted by vaccines and get the information you need to compare different brands to make an informed decision.
