HEALTH, how much Mercury is too much?

The Epoch Times (Rita Sand):
Despite the new Illinois law that limits mercury levels in vaccines, the Illinois Department of Public Health has declared 4 vaccines with high levels of mercury exempt from the law.

Some vaccines contain small amounts of Mercury, which is very toxic stuff. One of the leading activists on the issue is Barbara Mullarkey of Oak Park.
Senator Don Harmon of Oak Park, a key sponsor of the law, admits that it allows the IDPH to declare exemptions but said he was disappointed to see the department had granted an exemption so quickly. "We put the provision in there purposefully to avoid a situation where there was a risk of an epidemic or a shortage of available vaccines but it's not clear to me that there was a shortage of thimerosal-free vaccine this year."
