Are vaccine ingredients safe?

Each vaccine comes with a package insert that is 12-20 pages long, although healthcare providers are only legally obligated (through Federal law) to provide you with a one-page vaccine information sheet (VIS) before the vaccine is administered.


We encourage you to review the full insert with your healthcare provider. If you need more time to review the materials, you may wish to reschedule your appointment or schedule additional time with your provider out of respect for their schedule.


Key areas to review include:

  • Warnings, and precautions

  • Potential adverse reactions

  • Administration and storage instructions
