In brief: No

No, immunizations do not include typical antibioics as additives at all.
Technically some act as inhibitors of infections with bacteria and so can be thought of as anti-bacterial in some way, but they are not and do not contain 'antibiotics'.

In brief: No

Vaccines contain attenuated viruses or bacteria to stimulate your immune system to resist the intended disease.
Antibiotics kill bacteria.
