Thimerosal, a preservative used in vaccines since the 1930s, may be responsible for exposing some children to mercury levels significantly higher than Federal guidelines recommend.

Increasingly, reports are surfacing of children who develop autism after receiving vaccinations for childhood diseases such as mumps, measles and rubella and hepatitis B. However, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found no evidence that any vaccine or vaccine additive increases the risk of developing autism or any other behavior disorder. Besides vaccines, some children's nasal drops and eardrops contain the preservative.

Despite the concerns, the CDC encourages all parents to have their children vaccinated. It is important to discuss childhood vaccines with your health care provider.

If your child has experienced serious health problems after receiving a vaccine, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
