Are COVID-19 Vaccines Vegan Friendly?

Vegans may have questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. After all, there are some medicines that contain animals products.

Some vaccines can be found to contain ingredients like shark squalene, egg, milk, or gelatin. Others may use similar substances in manufacturing, but not in the vaccine itself.

There are other ethical considerations at play, too, such as the requirement for new medicines to undergo animal testing.

Animal testing vaccines before trial on humans is actually law here in the UK.

So here it is:

All three of the jabs currently offered in the UK do not contain any animal products, according to the NHS. This includes, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna.

The issue some vegans may have with the vaccine is related to medical testing on animals. All of the Covid-19 vaccines have involved testing on animals.
