Hi, is thimerosal dangerous for constant administration by vaccines? I have read some articles which indicate it is unsafe.

Hi, thimerosal is a preservative that used in some vaccines. It contains mercury in high percentage and is therefore toxic. It is metabolized into ethylmercury and thiosalicylate. As a vaccine preservative, it has been used in allowed concentrations of 0.003% to 0.01%. However, lately it is not very popular to use thimerosal in vaccines and efforts are made to remove it from all existing vaccines. Particularly manufacturers of childhood vaccines are asked to eliminate thimerosal from vaccines. The potential health effects of thimerosal are further examined.
