Chile Removes Mercury From Vaccines

Congratulations to the citizens of Chile, South America! You have understood the merits of removing toxic ethylmercury (Thimerosal) from vaccines to be given to pregnant women, children up to 8 years of age, and senior citizens over 60 years old.

Furthermore, vaccines given to populations not mentioned will contain no more than 1 microgram of mercury per dose, along with other specifications.

According to a press release from BioAutismo,

“Thimerosal Banned in Chilean Vaccines, A New Law” (Bill #7036-11):


• Thimerosal will be banned from all vaccines for the most vulnerable segments of the population (children 0-8 years of age, pregnant women, and adults over 60 years of age).

• Trace amounts of Thimerosal will be allowed (up to 1 microgram of mercury per dose) in vaccines for the rest of the population, with informed consent, as per current Law # 20.584, article 14.

• In case of emergencies or epidemic outbreaks, Thimerosal amounts higher than a trace may be allowed, but not simply because of a lack of stock, rather because there are no alternatives in the market without this compound, and always under a Presidential decree, keeping close attention to the strictest limits set forth by the regulatory agencies in the world, and, as always, with informed consent.

The press release acknowledges:

“We, BioAutismo, extend our thanks to CoMeD (Coalition For Mercury-free Drugs) and ARI (Autism Research Institute), both NGOs from the United States, as well as to Doctors Janet K. Kern, Evelyn Calderon, Paul G. King, Sergio Vaisman, and Pharmaceutical Chemist Mrs. Alexandra Zuñiga, all of whom prepared the latest reports given to the Congress’ Health Commission, prior to the final vote for this Law in Congress.”

The bill awaits the signature of the President of Chile, Sebastian Pinera. The press release was forwarded by Dr. King of CoMeD. View the English version of the press release here.
