Boy oh boy, I am looking into working for a company that provides flu and other vaccines for the general public (flu shot clinics and etc), and I am having a tough time.
I say the jury is still out as to whether thimerosol contributes to the incidence of autism, or even whether the amount of thimerosol in multidose vials of flu vaccine is significant. I hear all kinds of "facts," and am referred to research that says yes, and some says no. I am tempted just to not take the job, because if I am required to give a child something that potentially causes this problem, I can't do it. I've seen the effects of autism on kids and families, and it just breaks my heart. Can anyone give me a definitive answer? Even the CDC site contradicts itself.
