Mercury/ Thimerosal

Almost every vaccine used for children is now produced in a thimerosal-free form. Several vaccines continue to have trace amounts of thimerosal.

Ask your doctor for thimerosal-free vaccines. Ask to see the package insert and the vial that is used that contains the vaccine. 

 Some versions of tetanus and flu vaccines still contain the full amount of thimerosal.
  

Be Proactive and Ask Your Doctor
