the pink book at the cdc website is a GREAT resource!!! look here http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/additives.
Formaldehyde is used to inactivate bacterial products for toxoid vaccines, (these are vaccines that use an inactive bacterial toxin to produce immunity.) It is also used to kill unwanted viruses and bacteria that might contaminate the vaccine during production.

I'm allergic to formaldehyde. It's in a lot of things. So how do you know if your child is allergic before you give the immunization? You don't. Your child could have a life threatening reaction. I was hospitalized 3 days after my last immunization. That's one of the problems with immunizations is they contain more than one thing that can cause allergic reactions. My allergist had never seen such a bad reaction to an immunization. Since I was at a teaching hospital everyone had to come and look at me.

There are skin tests for formaldehyde allergy and I had those tests and that's how I found out that was one of the allergies I have. Many products have chemicals in them that release formaldehyde including baby products and clothing.
