I understand that vaccination is safe and effective and vaccines go through a rigorous testing and trials procedure reporting any side effects however I recently read that they are not tested for any carcinogenic, mutanagenic or fertility effects; is this because the ingridients present are so small that they wouldn't violate any regulation and wouldn't cause any harm so a test is unnecessary or is it that during trials no symptoms relating to a carcinogenic, mutanagenic or fertility problem are reported? Do vaccines have any effect on reproductive procedure/fertility?

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Carcinogenic products are well known and the additives and stabilizers used in vaccines are also thoroughly studied. Its highly unlikely that a carcinogenic compound is added to any vaccine. Similarly post marketing report data also suggest no such correlation for any vaccine used extensively.

Wishing you best of health
