An Unforunate but Important Note About Vaccines

This is a gem straight from the CDC website about vaccine additives - "All routinely recommended pediatric vaccines manufactured for the U.S. market contain no thimerosal or only trace amounts."

Really-- how can they say contains NO thimerosal and then say "or only trace amounts"? As if like the slurring of words at the end of a sentence they are hoping no one will hear.... no mercury... or only trace amounts...shhhh, be wary wary quiet....and maybe no one will notice...

This from a School Nurse on the west coast: "There are nine different types of H1N1 vaccines, three of them are made with Thimerasol. Six are Thimerasol "free", or are they? My question is if they can make the vaccine without it why make ANY that have Thimerasol in it?"

Good question, especially when you are talking about Thimerasol, a mercury based preservative.

Please see the Guide blog post regarding mercury in vaccines -

And if you are choosing do get the H1N1 vaccine, ask for Thimerasol-free.
