California Vaccines Still Contain Mercury AB 2943

Get Vaccine Exemptions
Bill AB 2943 is still in effect! How much mercury is in vaccines given to adults that aren't pregnant and kids over the age of 3 years? Notice that 'Mercury-Free' is a term used to express a level of mercury but gives the impression there is no mercury.

 Thimerosal, a chemical used to prevent contamination of multi-dose vials of vaccines, contains mercury. California’s Mercury-Free Act took effect on July 1, 2006. The Act prohibits administering mercury-containing vaccines to pregnant women or to children younger than three years of age. To meet the “mercury-free” standards in this law, most vaccines may not have more than 0.5 micrograms of mercury per 0.5 milliliters of vaccine dose. The mercury limit for influenza vaccine is 1 microgram per 0.5 milliliters. All routine vaccines are available in formulations that meet the Mercury-Free Act.
