Oh my. I thought this was no longer an issue and all vaccines are now mercury free.
I suppose this:
is what I thought to be true. It is followed by this caveat:
our grocery store had a poster up with FOUR different kinds of flu shots...the reg one for 18-65 yrs old, a thimerosol- mercury free one for pregnant women, the new microneedle shot for people afraid of needles, and a 'high dose' shot for seniors...why would seniors need a high dose? if anything, they've been exposed to the flu thru out their lifetime, and are immune, at least that's been my observation working with elderly for 13 yrs now. What are they getting a high dose of?< Brain eating mercury to induce dementia/alzheimers sooner?
I remember those conversations. Trying to find stats on how many pregnant women received thim containing flu shots was like trying to pin down jello.
The picture that emerged was:
-some pregnant women are offered thim-free shots
-thim-free shots are available in some places, but you have to know to ask
-some places do not have thim-free shots, but will happily vaccinate any pregnant women with no discussion of thim-free alternatives
-Availability of thim-free flu shots varies in different countries. All publicly funded flu shots in Canada contain thimerosal.
On another note, Tripedia, the DTaP vax, has mercury in it:
