Apparently the CDC knew about the dangers of thimerosol but ignored them to protect the vaccine manufacturers.
Is the CDC Deliberately Hiding the Truth about the Link between Autism and Mercury in Vaccines?

The latest scandal to hit the CDC is explosive: what appears to be a deliberate cover-up of damning scientific data.
Thimerosal, a controversial mercury compound used as a preservative in certain vaccines, was removed from all vaccines in Denmark in 1992.
