Refusing vaccines
#24
I brought up this discussion a few weeks back on another forum. While some vaccines are derived from human embryos, there are many that are not (and many of the "tainted" ones also have alternatives that were derived from animal tissues).

Here's a list, categorized by disease, drug name, and manufacturer (and when I say "approved" I mean approved by the FDA (US) for use):

<b>Vaccines Made from Human Embryos</b>

Polio

<i>Poliovax (polio-E-IPV)</i>: Manufactured by Pasteur Merieux Conaught Labs. Made from human cell line MRC5.

Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR)

<i>MMR II</i>: Manufactured by Merck Sharp & Dohme. Made from line WI-38.
(Note: The MMR is a combination of three vaccines. The measles and mumps vaccines are the same ones listed under the "Alternatives" section. The Rubella vaccine is the one made from line WI-38).

Rabies

<i>Imovax HDCV</i>: Manufactured by Pasteur Merieux Connaught. Line MRC-5.

Hepatitis A

<i>Havarix</i>: Manufactured by Glasko-Smith-Kline. Uses line MRC-5.
<i>VAQTA</i>: Manufactured by Merck Sharp & Dohme. Uses line MRC-5.
<i>TWINRIX</i>: Manufactured by Glasko-Smith-Kline. Uses MRC-5.
(Note <i>TWINRIX</i> is a joint Hep A and Hep B drug. The HEP B portion is not made from human stem cell lines, and no HEP B drug is made from human embryos. The HEP A portion is Havarix).

Chickenpox (Varicella)

<i>Varivax</i> or <i>Varicella</i>: Manufactured by Merck Sharp & Dohme. Uses WI-38.

<b>Alternatives</b>

Polio

<i>IPOL</i>: Manufactured by Pasteur-Merieux Connaught Labs. Monkey kidneys.
<i>Orimune</i>: Lerderle Labs. Monkey kidney cells. (Note: Drug is given orally).

Measles

<i>Attenuvax</i>: Manufactured by Merck Sharpe & Dohme. Chick embryos.

Mumps

<i>Mumpsvax</i>: Manufactured by Merck Sharpe & Dohme. Chick embryos.

Rubella

No licensed alternative.

Rabies

<i>RVA</i>: Manufactured by Glasko-Smith-Kline. Rhesus monkey.
<i>RabAvert (PECE)</i>: Manufactured by Chirion Bering Gmbl & Co. Chick embryo.

Hepatitis A

No licensed alternative.

Chickenpox (Varicella)

No licensed alternative.

All other current vaccines are not made from human stem cell lines.
