Mercury not in vaccines

It's hard to miss the posts from Mercola.com on medlogs.com.

Dr Mercola's frequent posts are often enhanced with graphics – so they stand out from the crowd. He does a good job sharing his opinion .. but today's post on mercury in vaccines is quite misleading. He suggests that readers/parents "read more on the link between autism and vaccines before deciding whether to vaccinate your infants." 

Huh?

He may not know that thimerosal is not in any of the commonly used pediatric vaccines – nor has it been for several years. Dr Mercola: please update your weblog to reflect a more accurate picture of pediatric vaccines circa 2004. While there may be reasons for some parents to have questions about vaccines .. thimerosal is not one of them.

This is a useful table that I often look for when teaching students and residents.  Now I'll never need to look very far.  😉
