Secondly - nearly every single vaccine contains trace amounts of Thimerasol (a mercury derivative which many babies are unable to process in their bodies in any higher levels)... those that say they are "Thimerasol free" had the thimerasol "washed out" during manufacturing - but it still leaves trace amounts.
Vaccinations such as chicken pox and the flu still contain the full amounts of thimerasol.
