You can get a vegan DHA, which is the nonfish replacement for omega 3s, as well as incorporating some flaxseeds and walnuts into your diet. Spectrum makes the one I take--but get the regular, not the "prenatal." The only difference is that the prenatal is twice as expensive for no apparent reason (comparing mg to $).
DEVA makes a bunch of different vegan supplements, including an iron-free multi. The co-op near me has them, and you can also order them online, via Amazon or any of the vegan stores like Pangea or Vegan Essentials.
Another "pure vegetarian" brand is Country Life.
Vitamin D isn't always marked vegan, but if it says D2 and/or ergocalciferol it is not animal derived.
Dr. Fuhrman's site also offers vegan versions: https://www.drfuhrman.com/shop/supplements.aspx
That's all I take: multi with B12, DHA, and sometimes some D in the winter but I just started that recently.
