Vaccine Hot-Shot News

From the Bergen Record comes an article titled: “CDC says vaccine to be mercury-free”

According to the article, federal health officials notified parents that “a preservative with high amounts of mercury is being discontinued in childhood vaccines.”

The preservative in question is thimerosal, and according to the article, thimerosal consists of nearly 50 percent ethyl mercury.

The CDC’s program hopes to have a thimerosal-free children’s immunization schedule by early 2001, according to the article. Concerned parents say it can’t be removed soon enough and want it out now.
