SOURCE: Does the flu vaccine cover you for all types of flu?

The vaccine protects against 3 of the main flu strains; the two type A flu bugs and one type B. These are the most common and virulent of the strains. It doesn't mean you won't still get a different strain of flu, it just lowers the chances.

SOURCE: Does the flu vaccine contain 25,000 times more mercury than legally allowed in drinking water?

Not sure but wouldn't have thought so. I have been taking the injection for over 20 years and I am still fine.

Is it true the the flu shot has caused many deaths due to the flu?


No.

Unfortunately, the flu shot is not 100% effective, but also, many of the children who died from the flu this year had not received the flu shot.

Does having flu shots increase you chances of getting Alzheimer disease ?


hi Eldon.
You may have heard someone say that they're not getting a flu shot because it might cause or increase the risk for Alzheimer's. Are they onto something, or is this a myth?
According to the Alzheimer's Association, the idea that flu shots (or the chemicals within the shots) cause or increase the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease is a common myth and is false.
Some flu shots contain a small amount of mercury in the thimerosal, the preservative that may be in some of the flu vaccinations. (Single dose flu shots generally don't contain this preservative since they're designed for a one time use when opened.) According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, three governmental agencies and three independent agencies have conducted rigorous research that have demonstrated that the amount of mercury in thimerosal is safe and does not pose any harm, other than minor redness or swelling where you receive the shot.

Do flu shots still contain mercury?


Some large, multi-use containers of flu vaccine contain a trace amount of ethyl mercury, a harmless preservative.

The poisonous forms of mercury are methyl mercury, pure mercury, or mercury vapour.

This is analogous to chlorine, a most toxic gas, and very harmful as hydrochloric acid, yet we eat it every day as common salt, sodium chloride.

If you are still concerned ask for your flu shot to be given from a single use vial, which contains no preservative.

Is there mercury in flu vaccines given to children?


The short answer is no.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved several formulations of the seasonal flu vaccine, including multi-dose vials and single-dose units. (See Table of Approved Influenza Vaccines for the U.S. 2014-2015 Season.) Since seasonal influenza vaccine is produced in large quantities for annual vaccination campaigns, some of the vaccine is produced in multi-dose vials, and contains thimerosal to safeguard against possible contamination of the vial once it is opened.

The single-dose units are made without thimerosal as a preservative because they are intended to be opened and used only once. Additionally, the live-attenuated version of the vaccine (the nasal spray vaccine), is produced in single-dose units and does not contain thimerosal.

Thimerosal is mercury based compound but its use has decreased as most vaccines are single dose today.

Are there different types of flu shots available?


: Yes, there are four main types of flu shots available:

1; The traditional flu shot that is injected into the muscle. It contains flu-particles but will not give you the flu.

2; The high-dose shot that is the same as the shot above but contains a higher dose

3; The intradermal flu shot that contains the same vaccine as the others but can be injected just skin deep and can be used on people age 18 to 64.

4; The nasal spray vaccine that can be used on people age 2 to 49. It contains a live, weakened flu virus.

Your doctor will advise you which of the vaccines is best for you.
