Does the shot for invega (paliperidone) have thimerosal?

No. Invega sustenna (paliperidone palmitate) is a water-based suspension of particles that carry the invegaedication. Thimerosal was used in the past with some vaccines as a preservative. Given how sustenna is made it does not need a preservative.
