Our SD delegation in congress sent their staff to hear David Kirby and Mark Blaxill at Rep. Maloney’s office. Next they received all the follow-up information including: David Kirby’s slides; a response refuting Rep. Waxman’s Dear Colleague letter; a request to the IACC to post warnings about the risk to pregnant women and children from mercury in flu shots; and several emails about mercury toxicity with references from the USEPA, FDA, and AAP.
So while congress works on a national solution, and except for those 5 or so states that already ban it, do we just sit by and watch the massive continued use of Thimerosal in flu vaccines for pregnant women and children? No! The next step is to talk and inform people within arms reach in our own communities.
During the past week after talking to a nurse, special ed teacher, parish priest, UPS driver/mom, plumber, and employees at five retail stores – and asking if they knew about their right to know about mercury in vaccines and the right to ask for mercury free vaccines the response was “No.” But for all those asked to please post a one page bulletin with that information - the answer was an enthusiastic “Yes!”
Will you please consider posting the following bulletin with this information in your community? This is a one page bulletin (Click here) that explains that there is mercury in the flu shot. While we continue the necessary work with congress to act on a national basis, please ask yourself this: How many children might be spared right now by this simple act?

“Mercury in all of its forms is toxic to the fetus and children, and efforts should be made to reduce exposure to the extent possible to pregnant women and children as well as the general population.”
