How are vaccines disposed of?


Its been a busy two weeks here.   Finals are next week & then I'm off from school for 4 1/2 weeks.   We've started a remodeling project that will be finished on Dec. 31st.   I'm heading to Chicago in two weeks to hear Dr. Wakefield again & to help with the DAIR foundation fundraiser.

So.......lets dive into this weeks article.

Have you ever wondered how expired vaccines are disposed of?  Is there any special treatment that they need?   The answer may surprise you.

According to the Illinois Department of Health, any vaccine containing Thimerosal must be disposed of as hazardous waste.

In Wisconsin, the Flu shot is treated as hazardous waste as it contains 50,000 ppb of mercury.

What is the EPA limit for mercury in water?   2 ppb!

In Ohio, 4 out of 8 types of flu shots need to be treated as hazardous waste.

In North Dakota, Thimerosal containing flu shot & tubing containing chemotherapy drugs are considered hazardous waste.

An interesting sentence I came across while researching this article is this.

"While most of the thimerosal is removed by subsequent purification steps, the final vaccine may contain a trace amount of mercury, less than or equal to 1 mcg per 0.5 mL dose. This amount exceeds the federal threshold noted above and, as a result, the Novartis single-dose formulation should be disposed of as federally hazardous waste."

So, vaccine manufacturers say there is a trace of thimerosal in the vaccine & nothing to be worried about.  Federal guidelines say not so fast, that amount exceeds federal guidelines & needs to be disposed of as hazardous waste.

A quote said by EPA's own Judith Enck - “Mercury is a strong neurotoxin that can damage the nervous system and cause other health and environmental problems. The EPA has insured that this waste site will be cleaned up and that the taxpayers will not bear the burden of addressing this legacy of toxic contamination.”

Ok, so lets gets this straight.   Vaccines containing Thimerosal/mercury are considered safe & effective.  Bud when it comes to disposing of the excess or expired vaccine, it has to be treated as hazardous waste.  

Our own government officials tell us that even a trace amount exceeds federal guidelines & has to be treated special.

What is wrong with this picture?  Why are people so willing to sacrifice their children to hazardous waste?   Why are people thinking that taking hazardous waste into their body will make them healthier?

It all boils down to subscribing to the religion of pharmakia.  

Until next time,
