August is a month of contrasting experiences — from final vacations and outdoor fun, to back-to-school shopping and planning for flu shots. Whether we like it or not, September is soon upon us and RVNAhealth is already busy preparing for the flu.
In the U.S., fewer than half of all adults get the flu shot each year. There are many reasons people opt out, but one common misconception is around thimerosal — a mercury-containing compound used as a preservative in multi-dose flu vaccines. While RVNAhealth only offers thimerosal-free single-dose flu and pneumonia vaccines, it is important to understand the facts about thimerosal safety.
