Too much aluminum: The Pneumovax has aluminum as an adjuvant which, when injected, is a powerful neurotoxin. I could argue that the reason you forgot about the first one was the aluminum in it! See https://tinyurl.com/y7yghgoa You'll probably be fine but avoid vaccines with aluminum (most of them) for awhile. I am more concerned about how aluminum affects young children- see https://tinyurl.com/y9aemdwv
