"Scott Allen, executive director of the Illinois academy (of Pediatrics), explained: "The amount (of thimerosal) in the multidose influenza vaccine (12.5 micrograms) is well below even the most conservative standards for mercury exposure."  EPA states that the only "safe" level is 1/10 of 1 mcg per day so 12.5 is 125 times the "safe" level.

Does danger lurk in that vaccine? By Judy Thomas (pdf) 101/14/05
"Only Sanofi Pasteur is approved to market a new mercury-free pediatric flu vaccine. Spokesman Len Lavenda said the company had planned to make 8 million doses of the mercury-free version of its Fluzone vaccine for this flu season but has cut back to 6 million doses.

The CDC estimates it would take about 12 million doses to vaccinate all children ages 6 months to 23 months.

"We were prepared to more than double the quantity this year, but demand for the product didn't warrant producing that much," Lavenda said. "While we have on several occasions sold out all of our preservative-containing (mercury) vaccine in the last several years, we have never sold out all of our preservative-free vaccine."

Lavenda said he had no idea why health officials were not ordering more mercury-free vaccine."

Dental office evacuated in mercury spill
The Arizona Republic ~ Feb. 23, 2005 12:00 AM

A dental practice in Ahwatukee Foothills was evacuated for 30 minutes Tuesday during suspicion of mercury contamination. None was found, according to Phoenix Fire Department Capt. Wes Trayner.

A hazardous materials team was called to Jungle Roots Children's Dentistry, 4232 E. Chandler Blvd., after a bead of mercury from a filling was spilled onto a counter. The team cleaned up the mercury and tested the area. No staff or patients were exposed to the mercury, Trayner said.

NOTE: This was a pediatric dental clinic.  If that "bead" had not hit the counter, it would have gone into a filling for a child where it would then emit a lifetime of mercury vapor.

“I think the hardest part to deal with is getting rid of the vapor,” said Nicholas Brescia, EPA coordinator.

“Mercury that finds its way into environmental waters is converted by bacteria to methyl mercury, a persistent and highly toxic neurotoxin which is retained in the food chain,” continued Kuehne. “This is the reason for Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization advisories on consumption of certain types and amounts of fish, especially for children and pregnant women.”
