Just over a month later, comments from the public are invited from the Health Department. Almost all of the 103 comments at the meeting opposed adding more mandated vaccines. No representative from the NJ Department of Health nor the PHC was at this public hearing. Only a stenographer was present to record the hearing.
There was an armed security guard, however. After oral comments, 5 binders of peer-reviewed studies and other information demonstrating the toxicity of thimerosal (mercury) were left with the moderator for distribution to the health department. Sanofi-Aventis utilized their public comment time to support the regulation as it stood. They stand to profit hugely as the sole manufacturer of flu vaccine presently licensed in America for use in children age 6 months to 2 years old.
