“The quantity of mercury in that vaccine, about 12 micrograms of ethylmercury, is dwarfed by the amount of mercury that one typically encounters in the environment.”
“The kind of mercury that is sometimes used in vaccines is called ethylmercury and is far less toxic and more easily expelled from the body than methylmercury.”
“All mercury isn't the same: methylmercury vs. ethylmercury”

“He went on to say that while his own opinion was that thimerosal did not pose any risks, his calculations showed that the amount of ethylmercury children stood to receive from vaccines exceeded several established safety guidelines for methylmercury.”
“After running the numbers, the agency realized that an infant whose parents adhered to the recommended vaccine schedule could receive anywhere from 0 micrograms μg to 62.5 μg of ethylmercury at each of his two-month, four-month, and six-month checkups, for a maximum combined total of 187.5 μg.”
