Question: 

Where can I find a list of vaccines and their ingredients? I will not vaccinate my child until I can find this information.

Answer: 

Details of the composition of each vaccine can be found in the vaccine product monograph.  You can find the current BC routine childhood immunization schedule with links to vaccine product monographs (found on the vaccine manufacturers website) here.

The ingredients in vaccines have been carefully tested and are safe in the small amounts used in vaccines.  These ingredients are necessary to ensure vaccines work to protect against disease and to keep them safe.  You can find more information on vaccine ingredients here and here.

If you have questions or concerns about the ingredients in vaccines, we recommend that you speak with your family doctor or contact your local public health unit and ask to speak with a public health nurse. You can find the contact information for your local public health unit here.
