How much aluminium does a baby receive in routine vaccinations?

So how do these small amounts compare to the quantities of aluminium babies receive in vaccines? The chart below shoes the aluminium an average weight baby can get from the current UK vaccination schedule. Babies receive three injections at monthly intervals; the graph below assumes the aluminium intake from the vaccines is spread out evenly across the month.

The aluminium load from vaccines (in green) is far greater than that from any of the feeds (only just visible on the chart), and, well above either the WHO safety levels.
