There are lots of good resources online — for example, the CDC has an excellent education page here on adjuvants like aluminium — but the best advice I can give you is to go have a chat with your child’s doctor.

Reading things online can be scary, and really no matter how many good resources I send your way it’s hard to be convinced by text on a page. Doctors study for decades to understand exactly what’s happening when a child gets a vaccine, and can give you a far better explanation face-to-face than I can over the internet.

That’s what doctors are for, after all.
