From what I have read, I do not see any reports of a link between vaccines or mercury and the development of polymyositis.

Potential causes with juvenile polymyositis includes: auto immune response and infection causes.

There may be a genetic predisposition as well that may be elicited by environmental triggers.

Take care.
