CDC list of Vaccine Ingredients
For a table put out by the CDC on Vaccine Contents (solvents, adjuvants, preservatives, allergens ... [PDF] see: http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/pink/vaxcont.pdf

"They removed the table...wonder why...but you may search for information.  Type in thimerosal, in many vaccines still today, and see what they don't tell you.  I have logged numerous hours researching information on vaccines and have met numerous people who have children that have had adverse reactions to shots.
Regardless of government tactics a parent DOES have the right to refuse shots and I have information on that as well (along with the codes of law).
There are two sides to a coin.  Unfortunately, people don't take the time to think for themselves anymore."
