In brief: All but 1 have none

Mcv4-menactra, menveo, menhibrix, and single dose menomune-a/c/y/w-135 all have no metal ingredients.
Only the multi dose vial of menomune-a/c/y/w-135 has thimerosal preservative--mercury is considered a metal. Also, unlike popular press, one cannot get meningitis from these vaccines--they only have killed partial particles.
