Aluminum Salts

Aluminum salts are some of a half a dozen distinct forms of aluminum adjuvants present in vaccines, including the Pediarix DTaP-HepB-IPV combination vaccine. Recognizing the risks of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, numerous researchers have called for a halt to the use of aluminum salts in vaccines. In one study from France, researchers suggested re-substituting aluminum salts for calcium phosphate as an adjuvant, as calcium phosphate was the original adjuvant France used in the DTaP and poliomyelitis vaccines before it was replaced with aluminum salts in the late 1980s.
