TRENTON, N.J. (April 2, 2018) – A bill introduced in the New Jersey House would phase out vaccines containing mercury and push back against federal narratives on vaccinations.
Representative Valerie Huttle (D-37) introduced Assembly Bill 3569 (A3569) on March 12. The legislation would phase out the use of vaccines that contain mercury over a three-year period.
Under the proposed law, beginning January 1, 2019, health care providers would be prohibited from administering an influenza vaccine that contains more than 0.5 micrograms of mercury per 0.25 milliliter dose for children under three years of age, and 1.0 microgram of mercury per 0.5 milliliter dose for persons over three years of age, along with any other vaccine that contains more than a trace amount of mercury. Beginning January 1, 2020, health care providers would be prohibited from administering vaccines that contain more than a trace amount of mercury. Beginning January 1, 2021, health care providers would be entirely prohibited from administering vaccines containing mercury.
A3569 provides for an exception for instances in which the New Jersey Commissioner of Health determines that vaccines containing a higher level of mercury than provided for in the bill are necessary to prevent or respond to an outbreak of disease or that there are insufficient amounts of these vaccines to adequately protect the public health.
The bill would also require those receiving a vaccine containing more than a trace amount of mercury be informed in advance that the vaccine contains mercury….
Painfully slow and inadequate, yet it does demonstrate the potential.
