Floggi you brought up the fact that without knowing the amount of mercury it’s impossible to gauge the potential negative impacts.
Amount of mercury per flu shot by age group:
fetus : 25 mcg
6-24 months : 12.5 mcg
36 months : 25 mcg
4 years+ : 25 mcg
The EPA has guidelines for the maximum daily mercury exposure by age group so let’s put this amount of mercury in context.
A 6 month year old with an average weight of 7.7 kg has a max allowance of 0.77 mcg mercury a day. With 12.5 mcg mercury in the flu shoot at that weight, this would put that kid at 16.2x over the EPA guidelines.
Now let’s take an adult with an average weight of 70 kg. According to the EPA the max allowable mercury exposure for this person is 7.0 mcg. With 25 mcg of mercury in the flu shot this would put you at 3.5x the max allowable amount.
We can do this for all ages, and for every age the mercury given in a flu shot will still be over the guidelines set by the EPA. A mother who gets a flu shot while pregnant will be given her kid a dose of mercury that is 250x the max amount allowable per the EPA.
