From the Archives: CDC Recommends Shot Still Containing Thiomersal!


A CDC panel voted unanimously in February 2008 to recommend flu shots for all school-age children, a move that would compel private insurers to cover the costs and require the CDC to make the vaccine available to anyone who couldn’t afford it, even though thiomersal is still found in the flu shot recommended. As of December 2008, the CDC website posted recommendations that children 6 months – 19 years, pregnant women, and those over 50 as well as those working or living in healthcare facilities obtain this flu shot.

Thiomersal in vaccines is suspected of causing brain damage and weakening the immune system, making children more susceptible to later infections from measles, mumps and rubella shots given routinely. Though the US has been phasing thiomersal out of vaccines beginning in 1999, it is still found in the flu shot the CDC recommends as of this past flu season! Supposedly the amount of thiomersal is so minute it will not cause harm – yet toxicology studies on thiomersal suggest it is not only highly toxic by ingestion, contact and inhalation but that it takes 14 days to exit the brain, 18 days to exit the body.

The fine line is a distinction between the statement that deems vaccines the CAUSE of autism (science continues to suggest that autism is mostly likely a genetic defect) and the statement that vaccines contain toxic compounds which present an aggravator to the genetic defect to cause autism to manifest itself.

This case [from Nov. 2007] echoes the stories of thousands of children across the country,” said NAA President Wendy Fournier. “With almost 5,000 similar cases pending in vaccine court, we are confident that this is just the first of many that will confirm what we have believed for so long – vaccines can and do cause children to regress into autism.” [emphasis added]
