A Rude Awakening! Allergy Shots Can Contain Aluminum

Allergy shots contain concentrations of either glycerol or phenol diluents8  (substances used to thin or dilute9), which double as antimicrobial agents or preservatives.10 

Phenol  or carbolic acid is derived from distillation of coal tar and is an extremely poisonous compound that is used in a highly diluted form as an anti-microbial in vaccines and other products.11 It is an ingredient in five vaccines licensed in the United States, including Hib (PedvaxHIB), Hib/Hep B (Comvax), Pneumococcal (PPSV-23—Pneumovax), Smallpox (Vaccinia—ACAM2000), and Typhoid (inactivated—Typhim Vi).

Ah, but here’s the real kicker. Allergy shots can contain aluminum as an adjuvant. Same as with vaccines, only perhaps much more aluminum per shot and cumulatively, given that allergy shots are given more frequently (often weekly or monthly7 16) than vaccines.17 

According to Christopher Exley, PhD, professor of bioinorganic chemistry at Keele University in the United Kingdom:

Aluminium-based adjuvants are the most commonly used adjuvant in sub-cutaneous allergy immunotherapy (SCIT). Approximately 75% of all such adjuvant-based therapies include an aluminium salt. In parallel with the use of aluminium-based adjuvants in vaccinations these adjuvants have been in use in allergy immunotherapies for over 80 years.18 

“There are very few data purporting to the safety of aluminium adjuvants in allergy immunotherapy and particularly so in relation to longer term health effects,” adds Dr. Exley.18
