Since flu season is upon us, and many are almost forced by their docs to take the flu shot (or flumist)....
FYI: The company, Fluzone, who makes the vaccine with thimerosol ALSO make single-dose flu vaccines with nothing but sterile water and dead virus in them.
They are more expensive, but I order these for patients who have to deal with the red tape hassle (docs/nurses whose hospitals mandate them).
See if your doctor is willing to order the safer vaccine?
Maybe he/she will get some much-needed education in the process.
For those who are pregnant and/or have small children, many doulas and nurse midwives know of more open-minded OB's....and pediatricians. Even compounding pharmacists in your area may be a good resource.
Btw, the flumist does NOT have thimerosol in it, but it is a live virus. And this means if you get the flumist, you're more susceptible to actually getting the flu, AND because of viral shedding, you can TRANSMIT the flu to others around you who are immunocompromised....like the kids with ASD I treat. Please don't do this.
