SAFEMINDS MERCURY-FREE FLU VACCINE PROJECT
SafeMinds is deeply concerned that the risks of getting mercury-containing seasonal influenza vaccines outweigh the benefits for pregnant women, infants and children. Mercury is known to be highly toxic to brain tissue and can impact critical stages of brain development.
A large-scale scientific study in approximately 50,000 pregnant women over five flu seasons found no difference in the risk for developing influenza illness among those who received the influenza vaccine during pregnancy and those who did not. Reviews in the medical journal The Lancet found a lack of health benefit from influenza vaccine in children under two along with significantly increasing rates of vaccine- related adverse events.
SafeMinds has developed a toolkit of resources to help you understand the flu vaccine and spread the word about the potential risk.
