A question is not a position.Your link is decent. Your apparent position is total nonsense.
You said: "there's been no mercury used in vaccines for twenty years " which the FDA article shows to be false.
There is no need for precautions given the very high level of confidence they show in their conclusions.In 1999, the US Food and Drug Administration was required by law to assess the amount of "mercury" in all the products, not just vaccines. They recommended removing thimerosal childhood vaccines as a precautionary measure. By 2001 the manufacturing of childhood vaccines with thimerosal as a preservative ceased.
There was zero evidence that the ethyl mercury in thimerosal at the levels used since the 1930's caused any ill effects. (In the 1990s idiots begen to conflate the methyl mercury that was at issue in environmental poisoning with its ethyl variant. They are about as much the same as ethyl alcohol in booze is to methyl alcohol in methylated spirits).
Anyway, as a precaution, and to remove any excuse uneducated people might present to avoid vaccinating their children, it was removed, the products reformulated, and single does vials mostly used. Indeed there are still some flu vaccine multi-dose vials that use extremely low levels of thimerosal as a preservative. These multi dose vials are needed to produce say enough flu vaccine for an entire country. But the single dose may still be chosen as an option.
If there is no basis for concern, there is no reason for precautions.
A lot of this, by no means the whole story, just comes down to trust. You like to regularly berate people for basically withholding trust from Big Pharma and a heavily compromised and corrupted political system. If you want to trust these people - most imprudent methinks - that is your choice but don't fault others for not joining you.
