Don’t Be Afraid Of A Little Thimerosal

UNICEF/ HQ06-1800/Josh EsteyI’ve been trying to get my friends to go out and get vaccinated for the flu this winter. One particular friend is very adamant about not getting a flu shot. She believes that the chances of the flu shot actually preventing her from getting the flu are very slim. She says that her cousin got the flu shot and he ended up getting the flu anyway. She told me that she would rather save her money for something that might actually work.

I asked my friend why she wouldn’t just get a flu shot. Anything was better than nothing. She didn’t budge from her stance. She didn’t want to put harmful things in her body that are found in the flu vaccine like thimerosal. I told her that the trace amounts of thimerosal found in vaccines aren’t enough to do any damage to anybody. She believes that if she were going to get sick from the flu, then it was meant to happen. I wish she wasn’t so stubborn all the time. It’s quick, easy, and helps prevent sickness. There’s nothing wrong with that.
