Is the mercury in vaccines tiny? Is it less than the amount you get eating fish?

In brief: Yes

The form of mercury is also one never proven toxic to humans.
Its human effect is similar to the difference seen in alcohols. Methyl alcohol is so toxic a tablespoonful will kill you (if ingested), while ethanol can be taken in rater large quantities & just get you drunk.

In brief: Yes

With the exception of certain types of flu vaccine all the vaccines we use are mercury free.
1 can of tuna contains more mercury than 30 flu vaccines.
