Petitioning American Academy of Pediatrics AAP Director and 3 others

American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP): The AAP must reverse their support for using mercury preservatives in childhood vaccines.


To prevent injecting mercury (thimerosal) into pregnant women, infants and children around the world, support is needed to eliminate mercury from all medical, pharmaceutical and personal care products. The second most toxic element on Earth has no place in 21st century medicine.
