My 6-yr old has autism and asthma. He HAS to get the flu shot every year. There is a Thimerosol-free version of it. I have to ask for it early since they only make a small batch in the dosage for children over 3 yrs of age. The nurses usually give me a hard time about it even with all his issues.

I am shaking my head here. I don't have a child, but if I did, or if I chose to skip the thimerosol flu shot, I am mighty glad those nurses aren't talking to me, for their sake. Unbelievable.

Vera, that is really great info that there do exist thimerosol-free children's shots. They sure aren't breaking the bank advertising them.

Hmm, looking around online indicates that there are indeed thimerosol-free flu shots for adults, too--but that they are quite the exception.
