Also, Mercury has been removed from many vaccines (not all) and is not the only reason that we do not vaccinate. If that was the only negative ingredient in vaccines we would happily vaccinate, however seeing how vaccines contain more negative ingredients than positive, we will stick with nature and basic hygiene to keep us healthy!

Some forms of the flu shot are the last remaning vaccines to still contain a measureable amount of mercury in them. Other vaccines use mercury during the manufacturing process but it is filtered out of the final product. There is, of course, the disclaimers to say that there are trace amounts in the vaccines but the quantity of mercury in the final product is not measurable. The type of mercury used in the production of vaccines is called thiomersal. The type of mercury found in seafood is methylmercury and is just as toxic as thiomersal. There is about as much methylmercury is one halibut fillet as there is thiomersal in the mercury-containing adult flu shot, which is roughly 25 micrograms. Carnivorous fish such as shark, mackrel, tuna, walleye, etc. tend to have a larger accumulation of methylmercury in their flesh than smaller, herbivorous fish such as tilapia, herring, or shrimp.

Methylmercury, the kind found in fish flesh, is readily and completely absorbed in the human GI tract and is transported freely throughout the body, crossing the blood-brain barrier and across the placenta, to a fetus, which is why pregnant women are advised to limit their intakes of certain kinds of fish. Methylmercury is not easily eliminated from the system and has a half-life of roughly 50 days in the human bloodstream. Thiomersal mercury, the kind found in flu shots, is no less toxic than methylmercury and also crosses the blood-brain barrier and the placenta, but only has a half-life of roughly 4 days.
There are flu shots available without mercury. You can find the listing of them in the Dr. Sears Vaccine Book.
Our family doesn't do flu shots and we selectively / delay vaccinations.
