Repeal of Thimerosal Rider under Omnibus Approriations Bill
Thu, 20 Feb 2003
Congress has acted! On Valentine’s Day, Congress passed the Omnibus Appropriation Act, repealing the thimerosal protection rider that had been slipped into Homeland Security Act. Vaccine manufacturers are no longer protected from liability. Parents may exercise their right to sue vaccine manufacturers if they have reason to believe a vaccine product caused their child damage.

“Protecting the health and informed consent rights of children since 1982.”
On 2/14/03 The Omnibus Appropriations Bill passed. It completely repealed the thimerosal protection rider that was in the Homeland Security Act. Here is the language that was drafted as a compromise between Snowe, Collins, Chafee and Frist:
DIVISION L- HOMELAND SECURITY ACT OF 2002 AMENDMENTS
SEC. 102.NON-PREJUCIAL REPEAL OF SECTIONS 1714 THROUGH 1717 OF THE HOMELAND SECURITY ACT OF 2002. (a) REPEAL. – In accordance with subsection (c), sections 1714 through 1717 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-296) are repealed.
(b) APPLICATION OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE ACT. – The Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 201 et seq) shall be applied and administered as if the sections repealed by subsection (a) had never been enacted.
(c) RULE OF CONSTRUCTION.- No inference shall be drawn from the enactment of sections 1714 through 1717 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-295), or from this repeal, regarding the law prior to enactment of sections 1714 through 1717 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002. Further, no inference shall be drawn that subsection (a) or (b) affects any change in that prior law, or that Leroy v Secretary of Health and Human Services, Office of Special Master, No. 02-392V (October 11, 2002), was incorrectly decided.
(d) SENSE OF CONGRESS. -It is the sense of Congress that-
(1) the Nation’s ability to produce and develop new and effective vaccines faces significant challenges, and important steps are needed to revitalize our immunization efforts in order to ensure an adequate supply of vaccines and to encourage the development of new vaccines;
(2) these steps include ensuring that patients who have suffered vaccine-related injuries have the opportunity to seek fair and timely redress, and that vaccine manufacturers, manufacturers of components or ingredients of vaccines, and physicians and other administrators of vaccines have adequate protections;
(3) prompt action is particularly critical given that vaccines are a front line of defense against common childhood and adult diseases, as well as against current and future biological threats; and
(4) not later than 6 months after the date of enactment of this Act, the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions of the Senate and the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the House of Representatives should report a bill addressing the issues described in paragraphs (1) through (3).
