I have seen people draw the same conclusions about vaccines. I will not draw my own conclusions. I need to see good, peer-reviewed research.
Just because your child dies a week or even 1 day after the vaccine, does not mean the death was caused by the vaccine. This article is a link to a website that says that girls have died and had immune system compromise following the Gardasil vaccine. ALL their evidence is anecdotal, there is no scientific study presented. http://sanevax.org/gardasil-vaccine-one-girl-dead/ The problem with anecdotal evidence is that people make correlation imply causation, similar to the ice cream causing drowning example above. This is a dangerous train of thought! In the 3rd paragraph down, this article says that yes, 32 deaths "from the gardasil vaccine" are reported to VAERS. But after autopsy, these children died from other things such as viral illness, illicit drug use, heart failure, and diabetes. Just because a reaction is reported to VAERS doesn't mean it is actually caused by the vaccine. VAERS is all anecdotal evidence. The government looks into the claims and it pays for any actual injury where they see causation.

- Aluminum gels or salts of aluminum which are added as adjuvants to help the vaccine stimulate a better response. Adjuvants help promote an earlier, more potent response, and more persistent immune response to the vaccine.
- Antibiotics which are added to some vaccines to prevent the growth of germs (bacteria) during production and storage of the vaccine. No vaccine produced in the United States contains penicillin.
- Egg protein is found in influenza and yellow fever vaccines, which are prepared using chicken eggs. Ordinarily, persons who are able to eat eggs or egg products safely can receive these vaccines.
- Formaldehyde is used to inactivate bacterial products for toxoid vaccines, (these are vaccines that use an inactive bacterial toxin to produce immunity.) It is also used to kill unwanted viruses and bacteria that might contaminate the vaccine during production. Most formaldehyde is removed from the vaccine before it is packaged.
- Monosodium glutamate (MSG) and 2-phenoxy-ethanol which are used as stabilizers in a few vaccines to help the vaccine remain unchanged when the vaccine is exposed to heat, light, acidity, or humidity.
- Thimerosal is a mercury-containing preservative that is added to vials of vaccine that contain more than one dose to prevent contamination and growth of potentially harmful bacteria."
