The CDC says flu vaccines in multi-dose vials contain Thimerosal. This is what is normally given to the public en masse. Dr. Oz says Thimerosal is 49% mercury. This paper (PDF, 2006, from Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) says no flu vaccine should be given to any pregnant women, ever. Is that because of the toxicity of Thimerosal?
- 2 ppb is the maximum amount of mercury that deems water “safe” for drinking.
- Anything over 200 ppb mercury is considered TOXIC. Source: EPA website.
- There is up to 300 ppb mercury is in the “thimerosal-free” flu vaccine.
- There is 25,000 ppb mercury given in the flu shot containing 25 mcg of thimerosal as a preservative.

TLDR: Thimerosal is not safe for humans.
