US federal regulations may suggest risk from aluminum in vaccines

Aluminum is commonly added to vaccines to stimulate the immune system to better respond to a live virus or bacterial toxoid.

Regulations for drugs containing aluminum

A strong warning is required for drugs containing aluminum pursuant to US federal regulations:

WARNING: This product contains aluminum that may be toxic. Aluminum may reach toxic levels with prolonged parenteral administration if kidney function is impaired. Premature neonates are particularly at risk because their kidneys are immature, and they require large amounts of calcium and phosphate solutions, which contain aluminum.

Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates, who receive parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 µg/kg/day accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration.

(parenteral = not by mouth, neonates = newborn children)

How much aluminum is in vaccines?

An FDA study says:

the maximum amount of aluminum an infant could be exposed to over the first year of life would be 4.225 milligrams (mg), based on the recommended schedule of vaccines. … For example, the amount of aluminum in the hepatitis B vaccine given at birth is 0.25 mg.

Another source says:

The amount of aluminum in vaccines currently licensed in the US ranges from 0.85–0.125 mg/dose.

To convert mg (milligrams) to µg (micrograms), multiply by 1000.


The data suggests that an average 2.5-5 kg baby born prematurely or with impaired kidney function can only tolerate from 10-12.5 to 20-25 µg of aluminum per day, and therefore routine injection with the hep B vaccine containing 250 µg of aluminum at birth presents a significant risk of central nervous system, bone and tissue accumulation and toxicity.

It logically follows that further vaccinations may also exceed the daily recommendation and cause aluminum to accumulate at toxic levels, and getting multiple vaccines at once is riskier than getting one at a time, spaced out.

It appears doctors and vaccine safety experts commonly consider the long-term average aluminum intake and not daily intake. This may contribute to people being exposed to toxic daily levels of aluminum. I wonder whether the average doctor or nurse knows to withhold vaccination when risk factors such as premature birth or impaired kidney function clearly present themselves.

If you decide to vaccinate, mind kidney function and support it, and take every effort to detox aluminum and other excipient ingredients.
