Very long but good read about thimerosol, and vaccines

Dear Secretary Sebelius, Commissioner Hamburg and Director Frieden:

To the best of our information, it is currently the position of the United States government 

particularly the CDC, HHS, and FDA that mercury in the form of thimerosal is a safe 

component in vaccines. Unfortunately, that is not a scientifically sound position as this 

letter will explain and as shown by the vast majority of peer reviewed science, CDC 

documents and emails1. This necessitates the removal of mercury in the form of 

thimerosal from all vaccines as soon as possible. 

George Lucier, Ph.D., one of the co-signers of this letter, is former Associate Director of 

the National Toxicology Program responsible for coordinating toxicology research and 

testing across Federal agencies including CDC, EPA, FDA, NIH, OSHA, CPSC among 

others. Relevant to vaccines preserved with thimerosal, which contains mercury in the 

ethyl form, Dr. Lucier has stated in writing: 

Organic mercury is a developmental neurotoxin. There is an immense scientific 

literature base to support this statement. Ethylmercury, used as a preservative in 

vaccines, is an organomercurial compound. Logic coupled with public health 

concerns provide an overwhelming justification that mercury should not be 

deliberately given to the developing fetus, infants and children as well as adults. 

It is incomprehensible to us that our public health agencies still permit organic 

mercury to be part of our vaccine program. 

Our vaccine program is an important part of our disease prevention strategies. It 

would be much better and safer if mercury was removed from vaccines.

There are two additional irrefutable facts which support our position that mercury needs 

to be removed from vaccines, particularly the flu vaccine, immediately. These are:
