    Hi,

    Is Prevnar available in HK? I know a couple of friends in our playgroup did vaccinate for Meningitis but this was at 2years.

    It is stored in mercury/thimerosol (?? right spelling). Autism is somehow linked to mercury.

    Nope, I've asked and it is not stored in mercury or related substances.

    My little fella (59d) had the jab from Dr Ou as well, no side effects and after researching it I would say worth the red face and money. Still didn't stop him catching cold yesterday though!!
