Just wondering how many of us MSer's have had the anti flu jab and for how long?
The reasons being is that I first started having the flu jab about 11years ago and have had the jab every year through work. I was diagnosed with PPMS in 1995 and I've only just found out that in most of these flu jabs there is a preservative and this preservative is Thimerosal, which is basically mercury based
I have also a mouthful of amalgam dental fillings, again mercury based.
How many of you get these flu jabs and when did you start
I still have the flu jab but now insist on the ones that DO NOT contain this Thimerosal.
They are Inflexal V, Begrivac and Pasteur from Aventis.
The ones that contain Thimerosal are Fluvirin, Fluarix, Influvac and Agrippal.
(This info I got from another MS site but I thought I would pass it on)
Interest in any reply
