This bill proposes to prohibit the use of mercury‑containing vaccines for children and pregnant women.<br><br>
While I don't love everything written in the <a href="http://www.leg.state.vt.us/docs/legdoc.cfm?URL=/docs/2008/bills/intro/H-114.HTM" target="_blank">bill</a>, I do think it may be a step in the right direction.<br><br>
Support the bill <a href="http://capwiz.com/a-champ/issues/alert/?alertid=9335371&queueid=1045949296" target="_blank">HERE</a>.

thanks i signed it even though i wont vax anytime soon, but for those of us who do, this is VERY important! thimerosol is one of the many reasons why we decided not to vax.

I agree. While it won't affect us specifically, it will indirectly, as we know and love lots of little ones who do still get vaxed.

<div style="font-style:italic;">I signed. How many are left in Vermont? I know it's still in the flu shot. Is it still in the RH shot?</div>

<br><a href="http://www.vaccinesafety.edu/thi-table.htm" target="_blank">Here</a> is a table listing Mercury-containing vaccines. Many flu shots do still have the full strength dose of mercury (25 mcg), but many more shots are still produced with thimerosal, leaving trace amounts in the vaccine.<br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=396527" target="_blank">Here</a> is a good thread on the topic.

Thanks so much for posting this information. I don't live in VT yet but we plan to move there later this year. It's great to know that the mercury issue is being reviewed. It would be awesome if some anti-mercury legislation would pass. It would set precident for the rest of the country!

As a wife of a very strong political husband who ran for Libertarian for state house the past 2 elections I know the in and outs of sending letters to representatives. Many will reply and say they will "look" into a bill but then never do as it is not an important issue "Of the moment" .<br><br>
I signed the letter even though we don't Vax our kids but if you truly want to see change you need to vote for some who respects individual freedoms and will uphold the constitution like the Libertarian party.<br><br>
take the world's smallest political quiz and see where you stand.<br><br><a href="http://www.theadvocates.org/quiz.html" target="_blank">http://www.theadvocates.org/quiz.html</a>

I always vote. Seems my preferred party doesn't do so well, though. I took that nifty little quiz. I'm very left of center...Libertarian...not really a surprise <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
