The HIB is supposed to be an influenza vaccine. I was wondering since doctors have said that the flu vaccines contain therimosal if the HIB vaccines also contains therimosal?

Formaldehyde is a common component of many niche uses. Formaldehyde (IUPAC name methanal) is a chemical compound with the formula CH2O. It is the simplest aldehyde. Formaldehyde also exists as the cyclic trimer trioxane and the polymer paraformaldehyde. It exists in water as the hydrate H2C(OH)2. An aqueous solution of formaldehyde can be useful as a disinfectant as it kills most bacteria and fungi (including their spores). It is also used as a preservative in vaccines. Formaldehyde solutions are applied topically in medicine to dry the skin, such as in the treatment of warts.
