19. Thimerosal HAS been in vaccines through 2002
with expiration dates that were well past the production dates of 2002. In july of 1999, the FDA simply asked that the mercury presented in vaccines be reduced, but no recall ever happened. The House Government Reform committee held a number of hearings on the issue, and, according to the testimony given by the FDA's witness in November of 2002, there were still vaccines containing mercury in production waiting to be shipped to health care providers. Adding to the complexity of mercury exposure was the mercury containing flu vaccines suggested use for pregnant woman, and use in the pediatric population. In 1991, a vaccine researcher for Merck sent a cautionary note to Merck executives regarding his concerns over the load of mercury presented by vaccines in children. Although other countries banned the use of mercury, the US continued to allow mercury in vaccines and are still allowed to have mercury in vaccines if they choose today.
