Not Just the Flu Vaccine

Just to be clear.

There is still thimerosal in some vaccines. Here is the CDC's list of thimerosal containing vaccines:

On July 5, 2005, the Food and Drug Administration released a list of vaccines with thimerosal (49.6 percent ethyl mercury). The following vaccines, still contain mercury as part of their manufacturing process or as a preservative.

DtaP - Tripedia, Aventis Pasteur, Inc.
Dtap-HepB-IPV - Pediarix, GlaxoSmithKline
DT - Aventis Pasteur, Inc
DT - Aventis Pasteur, Ltd.
Td - Massachusetts Public Health
Decavac - Aventis Pasteur, Inc
Td - Aventis Pasteur, Inc.
Energix - GlaxoSmithKline
Hepatitis B - Recombivax
HB (adult/adolescent available in preservative-free & thimerosal (mercury) containing vaccines;
HepA/HepB - Twinrix - GlaxoSmithKiline
Japanese Encephalitis - JE-VAC, Biken
Meningococcal - Menomune - Aventis Pasteur, Inc.

Amounts range from .5 micrograms to 25 micrograms. Check the CDC's web site for exact amounts. Vaccines with .5 micrograms are usually described as "low dose mercury" vaccines. However, there has never been any safety testing on thimerosal, so no one knows how much mercury is enough to cause harm.

Lead, a less potent neurotoxin than mercury, is considered unsafe at any level.
