In brief: Shelf Life
Just as certain foods "go bad" if not properly preserved, vaccins may lose their potency without some preservatives.
They would not survive the trip from the factory to the offices.The safe mercury compunds are such a preservative.All the current data, which is volumionus, shows no significant safety issues.

In brief: Thimersol
Thimersol is a preservative which is degraded into ethylmercury and thiosalicylate.
It has been eliminated or reduced to trace amounts in all vaccines for children under the age of 7, except for some inactivatedinfluenzavaccines. See the immunization action coalition website for excellent information. http://www.immunize.org/thimerosal/.

In brief: Works/not harmful
There is a difference between methyl alcohol,which 1tbsp intake will kill you & ethyl alcohol, which people enjoy, not all forms of mercury are the same.
The trace amounts of thimerosal in vaccines used as a preservative has never been shown to produce harm to humans.It does allow vaccines to remain potent longer. It was removed from vaccines to comply with random government mandates.
