How do you find out ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me how you can find out how much thimerisol or mercury was in each of a child's vaccines ? I know that our pedi could give us the manufacturer and lot of his vaccines, but where do I go to find out how much mercury was in those shots ?

Thanks,

Linda B.

I have not yet explored this site thoroughly but it looks promising.

I'll keep looking for more exact ingredients.

I found this from PubMed from 2001:

Predicted mercury concentrations in hair from infant immunizations: cause for concern.

An excerpt...

[According to the centers for disease control (CDC) recommended immunization schedule, infants may have been exposed to 12.5 microg Hg at birth, 62.5 microg EtHg at 2 months, 50 microg EtHg at 4 months, 62.5 microg EtHg at 6 months, and 50 microg EtHg at approximately 18 months, for a total of 237.5 microg EtHg during the first 18 months of life, if all TMS-containing vaccines were administered.]
