In the US:
The nasal mist flu vaccines do not contain thimerosal. The single dose prefilled needles of injectable flu vaccine either contain no thimerosal (CSL) or trace amounts of thimerosal (Novartis).
The multi-dose bottles of injectable flu vaccine do
contain thimerosal as a preservative, to reduce the risk of contamination.
This is the same as with seasonal flu vaccines.
