New Online Resource Tracks State Bills on Thimerosal and Lyme Disease

A new Legislative Map and Advocacy Resources page on the IDSA website highlights state legislation that would restrict thimerosal in vaccines and mandate insurance coverage for controversial Lyme disease treatments.

The page features a clickable map of all 50 states that links to a list of the current and previous bills in each state. The resource includes information about specific provisions of each bill and the bill’s status. Also included are IDSA position letters that can be adapted by state and regional ID societies and local IDSA members.

Please contact IDSA staff with questions or comments about these resources.
