Flu shots with Mercury

Postby AnchorsAway » Sat Nov 15, 2008 8:13 pm

I recently received my flu shot at the urging of my OB. I had no idea there were mercury-free versions available. I received the flu shot with the Thermisol (spelling is wrong) in it. I've been assured that all flu shots are safe for pregnant women, but have also seen where mercury (Thermisol) is being removed from all child vaccinations.

I was curious if anyone has a baby with a condition that can be correlated to receiving a flu shot.
