Fishy Vaccines

Who would have thought that you could get a vaccination from fish? Welcome to the crazy world of genetic engineering. Some major problems with this concept though. The first one is the central issue of whether or not vaccines are even effective. Then there is the issue of mercury contamination in the fish. Not sure if one would get more mercury from the fish or the thimerosol (mercury preservative) that is used in most nearly all vaccines. Then one would have to eat these fish raw to avoid destroying the vaccine.
