Aside from the side effects of the actual flu vaccines, we need to look at the other ingredients in vaccines that have possible long term consequences to our body.

What's in Your Flu Vaccine in addition to the inactive or live virus?

Thimerosal (a.k.a. mercury)
According to the CDC, flu vaccines contain thimerosal. Some flu vaccines have as much as 25mcg of mercury per dose. That's more than 250X times what the Environmental Protection Agency's safety limit for mercury is and just to let you know Mercury is 500-1,000 times more toxic than lead.

Formaldehyde - Since 1987 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classified formaldehyde as a probable human carcinogen and some studies of humans have suggested that formaldehyde exposure is associated with certain types of cancer. According to the CDC People with asthma, bronchitis, or other breathing conditions are especially sensitive to formaldehyde. The elderly and children can be at risk from formaldehyde..

Aluminum - a neurotoxin that has been linked to Alzheimer's disease

Neomycin - an aminoglycoside antibiotic

Polysorbate 80 - often contaminated with 1-4-dioxane, a carcinogen

Triton X-100 - a detergent

Phenol - carbolic acid

Ethylene glycol - antifreeze

Betapropiolactone - a disinfectant that is carcinogenic when injected into the blood

Nonoxynol - used to kill/or stop Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Growth

Octoxinol 9 - a vaginal spermicide

Sodium phosphate - associated with side effects of diarrhea, possible organ damage and the FDA warns that you should never take more than one dose within 24 hours of over-the-counter sodium phosphate drugs because they can cause severe health risks, even possible death.

Sugar & Gelatin

and either Egg Protein or Human Genetic Material (fetus?) that has been genetically modified
