A Letter to Walgreens and CVS

If you insist on getting the flu shot, you should ask for “preservative-free” (thimerosal-free) . Unfortunately the people that don’t ask are getting more mercury. Check out my letters to Walgreen and CVS to learn why you should insist.

RE: 2015 Flu Shots

As you know flu season is approaching. Every effort should be made to only offer a single dose flu shot. If you are giving people a choice between single and multi-dose they have to understand that multi-dose contains 25 mcg of mercury, which may cause neurological problems and tics. The problem is: the less educated and less affluent might not be aware of the thimerosal problems and it is your responsibility to make them aware.

Thank you for your cooperation.
