I just talked to my local health department and the Lead RN who has 6 years of education and 18 years of experience assured me she knows what she is talking about.
She said that the mercury free vaccines are only available at the health department for children under 3 for any vaccine.
That they don't get a lot of the mercury free vaccinations for flu (the nasal spray and the mercury free for children under three) and run out very quickly and they have been out of those vaccines for a long time.
The elderly, pregnant women and infants/children are given the '"multi-dose" flu vaccine and she doesn't know of any that are made without thimerosal. (She said to not worry though because thimerosal is not in any way related to the mercury we used to play with in thermometers and that it is as safe as eating tuna fish and won't hurt you.)
She had never heard of any special vaccines for pregnant women or the elderly with no thimerosal.
