Here's a short article by the CDC about thimerosal and vaccinations that might put your mind at ease.
OK I cannot spell it anyway(: Thimerosal. I have called around and locate one that is Thimerosal free. I know it is fine either way. My OB said it was fine. I just would rather one a with less (I know it still has trace amounts). It is all personal preference. I watch my seafood intake for mercury I do not see how that is any different. So to make my self feel better I will go with the preservative free version. Even if it is just a gimmick(:
Thanks for you input and suggestions. It only took an hour and a half to locate one(:
I got the thermasol free shot. I didn't even know that I needed a different one and when I went to Walgreens they said we have the thermasol free shot too which is what you would need. So I would call around to some Walgreens and see if they have it.
farrellashleigh:Oiy... there is more mercury in a can of tuna fish than in the regular flu shot. I urge everyone to stop worrying about it! Nonetheless, if you can't find the PF (preservative free) flu shot then call a pediatric office and ask if they offer adult flu shots. Typically pediatric offices administer PF vaccines and several offer adult shots for about $30.
I've avoided tuna while pregnant too
