Thimerosal (Mercury-based Preservative in Flu Shots) Safety Data Sheet

Thim1 We encourage you to learn more about the mercury based vaccine preservative Thimerosal, as it is in the news during flu shot season. HERE is the material data safety sheet so that you can make informed healthcare decisions for yourself and your loved ones. 

According to the CDC in Atlanta, the majority of flu shots available for Americans this season contain mercury. 

How much influenza vaccine is projected to be available for the 2010-11 influenza season? At the current time, six influenza vaccine manufacturers are projecting that as many as 160-165 million doses of influenza vaccine will be available from currently licensed manufacturers in the U.S. for use during the 2010-11 influenza season.

How much thimerosal-free influenza vaccine is expected to be available for the 2010-11 season? For the 2010-11 season, manufacturers project producing approximately 74 million doses of thimerosal-free or preservative-free (trace thimerosal) influenza vaccine.

No vaccine is safe.

VAERS proves it with over 200,000 + cases of adverse reactions.

If you are anti-vaccine then you don't believe in "mercury free vaccines are safe" or "greening vaccines are safe".

On the other hand if you are pro-vaccine then you believe in those statements and you can double up on the these vaccines that anti-vaccine people like myself don't get.

...Read between the lines- after the MMR scare!- in other words - after - we (Big Pharma) lost so much money when the truth was exposed about our vaccines - we (Big Pharma) now have to make up that amount of money lost when - we (Big Pharma) couldn't immediately recover the money. Even when - we (Big Pharma) went into "damage control" by trying to discredit Andrew Wakefield....


So a young adult between the ages 20-25 years old comes down with schziophrena- and his/her mother or parents or someone remembered that way back while she was pregnant that they had the flu.

And they found enough people that remembered that fact to make a conclusion?

I find that hard to believe.

But if they really think that then why in the heck are they giving flu shots to pregnant women??? Idiots or they don't care.

I on the other had think:

It is a DPT shot disguised as just a plain old tetanus shot that was given to them later in life - But nobody knows that because the medical community out right lies about what is being given to people.
"Oh, we will give you a tetanus shot, just to be safe as they drag out the vaccine labeled adult dose of DPT!

My husband still cannot get over this past fall when I refused the tetanus shot (after a very bad hand ripped while holding to a horse that was being shoed.) The doctor finally told us that the tetantus shot that was going to be given to me - the one they called a tetanus shot - would really have been a DPT shot. BUT he told us this only after I made is soooo very plain how all three of my family had been harmed. He assured me he would make sure it was a tetanus shot only.

I was nice to him, and told him that I was sure that he could numb my hand and clean it out really well. He did, and allowed it to bleed a lot too after he cleaned it.

MY GOD! I CAME SO CLOSE TO GIVING MY SON HIS TETANUS SHOT WHEN HE TURNED 16, because we lived on a farm. The school nurse was mean about it - I not only had to sign a religous wavier, she made me go to a doctor to get permission. I went to Doc Griffith - his father and his father before him have been the main doc in this small town. They still have the same old hard wood benches that I sat on as a small child. His son is just as kind as his father. He listened to us, told my son that it was not my fault, that I had listened to advice of the medical people, that I had wanted only the best for him. He said if my son got hurt on the farm that he had plenty of time to get the tetanus shot later on.
Still even Doc Griffith did not warn that the tetanus shot was a DPT Shot.

My daughter did receive her tetanus shot at 14 years old, because she was the most stubborn little thing- maybe that is why she became very depressed and her monthly became constant about that time????

I know she had a mood disorder since she had Kawasaki's at two, but she seem to come out of that in middle school and her monthlys had been normal up untill her Freshman year, then the depression and anger became unreasonable. I could walk into her room and you could feel the hate radiating from her body. She wanted to be left alone to watch her television!!!


Flu shot??!!! No,thanks.


All multidose injections (vials which contain more than one dose, must contain a preservative, this is often thimerosal/mercury. To have preservative properties it must be in a strength of at least 0.01%. Equivalent to 50 microgram thimerosal per 0.5ml dose, or 25 microgram mercury.

Single dose injections do not require preservatives.

During the manufacturing processes mercury may be used to prevent microbial contamination, even though it will not be present in PRESERVATIVE STRENGTH in the end product. This may also apply to single dose injections).

The intention is to remove all the mercury, but because it is difficult and expensive to remove absolutely all, up to 1 microgram per 0.5ml dose is permitted to remain.

This is termed "trace" mercury and is not sufficient to have preservative properties.

The misleading catch is that injections may be termed "preservative free" because they do not contain mercury in a high enough concentration to have preservative properties - but they may nevertheless contain "mercury traces", up to 1 microgram per 0,5ml dose!


"The risk of schizophrenia was increased 7-fold for influenza exposure during the first trimester. There was no increased risk of schizophrenia with influenza during the second or third trimester. With the use of a broader gestational period of influenza exposure—early to midpregnancy—the risk of schizophrenia was increased 3-fold."

"It isn't clear yet whether influenza vaccination during pregnancy could be helpful or harmful,” Brown added.“ One needs to weigh the benefit of protecting the woman and fetus from influenza against the potential risk of a vaccine-induced antibody elevation that could conceivably predispose to schizophrenia.”

Schizophrenia typically shows up at age 20 in males; 25 in females.


Trace thimerosal usually means 0.3 mcg mercury, but in terms of flu shots, it means 1 mcg mercury.

"Preservative level" flu shots contain 24.5 or 25 mcg mercury.

It's not as simple as saying 44-45% of the flu vaccines contain no mercury or "trace" amounts of mercury. Because each brand and formulation has specific age limitations. For kids under 2, there is only one specific formulation of one brand that is mercury free. (Fluzone prefilled syringe). All other brands and formulations for that age group contain the full amount of mercury. Kids ages 2-3 can either get a nonmercury live virus nasal spray vaccine, or, if their parents want them to get the shot, there is still only the Fluzone pre-filled syringe that is mercury-free.

So, if you have a child under 2, I bet it is extremely difficult to find a mercury free flu shot. And children ages 6 months to 2 years are the most vulnerable to mercury, after fetuses.

Going back to the article about the UK toddlers receiving six jabs - In this article it reads and I quote-

"The official advice was sent out to GPs in England and Wales last week . The Government believes the change will simplify the complicated immunisation schedule and boost the uptake of vaccines after the MMR scare.

Read between the lines- after the MMR scare!- in other words - after - we (Big Pharma) lost so much money when the truth was exposed about our vaccines - we (Big Pharma) now have to make up that amount of money lost when - we (Big Pharma) couldn't immediately recover the money. Even when - we (Big Pharma) went into "damage control" by trying to discredit Andrew Wakefield.

"Poor Loves" (Big Pharma) they are so desperate to make more money. The question is - are you prepared to make them a further "Billion" or two??

I just did the math. If 71 million out of the 165 million doses are thimerosal-free or preservative-free, then 43% of the vaccines contain less than 25 mcgs of mercury. So asking or requesting for a product that makes up close to 50% of the market is not unreasonable. It shouldn't be viewed as an insurmountable request.


A "trace of Thimerosal" means:

They don't quite know how or where the vaccines were made, and don't quite know how much of anything are really in them.

They can't throw them away because of the mercury content, and will probably give them away to the school systems and nursing homes for a tax write off...

By what I know even Thimerosal-free vaccine (not MMR because it is a live-vaccine)is made with Thimerosal. Supposedly the Thimerosal is then removed. But it can't be completely removed. That's what it means when they say there are still trace amounts.

By what I know about batches and how much of a preservative is contained in a batch, it often is not a very precise measurement. I have worked in a lab where preservative was added to a solution. Measurements often were off by about 30%. This was a number of years ago. However, I don't believe that these additives are kept track of extremely well.


So the thimerosol-free doses have "trace thimerosol"? Do the supposed thimerosol-free chilhood vaccines that are supposedly used now also have trace thimerosol?


so only around 90 million doses of influenza vaccine have thimerosal in them. That's not too many, eh? ;)


Is it just me, or does even "trace-thimerisol" totally scare the crap of you??!!
What the hell does that mean- "trace" and according to whom? The CDC??

Sorry if I'm not trusting enough...I'll pass.
