I have had people tell me that while they no longer use mercury in vaccines they still use it in the manufacturing process - but I don't know what that means...

This is a link that my son's pediatrician gave me. http://www.cdc.gov/od/science/iso/mmr_autism.htm
Gus was recently diagnosed with autism. I have to admit that even with all that I have read against the theory part of me still worries "what if..." . Why is that? I have always been pro-vaccine but now I have questions....I still have to read through the CDC site myself.

However, in July 1999, the Public Health Service (PHS) agencies, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and vaccine manufacturers agreed that thimerosal should be reduced or eliminated in vaccines as a precautionary measure.Today, with the exception of some Influenza (flu) vaccines, none of the vaccines used in the U.S. to protect preschool children against 12 infectious diseases contain thimerosal as a preservative.

I just pulled that info from http://www.cdc.gov/od/science/iso/thimerosal.html

Sorry, I just saw this now The bolded sentence is a half-truth; thimerosal may not be used as a preservative, but it is still used in the manufacturing process of several vaccines, which leaves "trace" amounts in the vaccine. But bear in mind that there is no such thing as a "trace" amount because there are still no guidlines for safety levels for ethylmercury. These vaccines still contain thimerosal:

Fluvarin (infuenza)
Fluvarix (influenza)
