Does anyone know what brands of vaccines are used in Ontario?

Here is the schedule for ours...

...does anyone know what brands are typically used? I just called my doctor and the receptionist was very rude and unhelpful.

2 links.  I do not know if they are helpful:

It is worth noting that all flu vaccines in Canada have thimerosal in them.  It might be possible to arrange and pay for non-thim flu vaccines.

 

Hep B also has thim in it, some provinces have hep b without thim, but you have to ask.  Thankfully, hep. b is not routinely given to newborns in Ontario.

I also found this, it is non-vax:

Thanks, those are helpful... I was after the ingredients lists of what's used here. We don't get the flu shots or chicken pox and things like that... just the traditional ones so far. 

Kathy, are you in Ontario?
