the safety of the upcoming novel H1N1 (swine) flu vaccine
Patients are asking about the safety of the upcoming novel H1N1 (swine) flu vaccine.
They're worried about thimerosal...adjuvants...and whether the new vaccine will increase the risk for Guillain-Barre syndrome.
Thimerosal. Tell patients that both the seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccines will come in versions that don't contain thimerosal.
