Housecall for Health: Vaccine Additive Gets All-Clear
The American Academy of Pediatrics has reversed course, giving the okay for a previously-banned additive to be used in children’s vaccines.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
Health officials have changed their stance on a controversial ingredient in vaccines that contains mercury. In 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics called for the removal of the preservative thimerosal, concerned kids receiving multiple shots might get high amounts of mercury.
But now, the AAP says the ingredient should not be banned or considered hazardous because new studies show it’s not a danger to kids.
