Did You Know...?
Did you know that there were two flu vaccinations? Some of you may have known this, but I'm sure this is new information for others. Yes!! There is a preservative free flu vaccination and there is one which has the preservative, thimerosal. This preservative has a mercury-based component. "It protects you from bacteria, fungus, or other microorganisms that may contaminate the flu vaccine." However, it may have adverse effects as well. The preservative free vaccine contains the same four strains as the average one and is just as powerful.
