Aluminum boat manufacturers have been lobbying Congress to extend the existing deadline for a vaccine, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently warned that the vaccine is not safe.
Aluminum manufacturers say the vaccine has been linked to autism.
The White House and other US government agencies have also expressed concern about the safety of aluminum boat manufacturing, saying the FDA needs to get involved to find a solution.
Some of the Aluminum Boat Manufacturing companies who have been campaigning for an extension include the aluminum boat manufacturers, which have raised $1.3 billion in 2017 alone.
The aluminum boat industry has been lobbying for an extended deadline since the vaccine was approved in late 2016.
Aluminum Boat Manufacture is a major industry in the US, with more than 1,000 companies operating in more than 200 countries.
The aluminum boat manufactures and their companies are involved in various industries such as aluminum, aluminum-coated stainless steel, aluminium alloys, aluminum pipe, and aluminum pipe and tubing.
The Aluminum Boat Industry Association, a trade group representing aluminum boat makers, has called for the extension of the deadline.
Aluminum boat manufacturing is the largest manufacturing industry in America.
The United States Aluminum Boat Association said it is concerned that the CDC and the FDA have not been working with the aluminum industry to find the best vaccine options, according to a statement to the Washington Post.
The agency has recommended that all U.S. aluminum boat owners take a flu vaccine, but the manufacturers argue the vaccine’s effectiveness is not as good as the flu vaccine currently on the market.
The statement also says that the Aluminum Barge Manufacturers Association has “serious concerns” that “unanswered questions” about the vaccine and aluminum are not being addressed by the FDA.
Alumina-based aluminum pipe manufacturing company Molycorp and its subsidiary Aluminum Biscuits & Co. are among the Aluminum boat makers lobbying Congress for an additional two years of the flu shot.
The Aluminum Bias is a lobbying group dedicated to “strengthening the voice of the American public in favor of the integrity of aluminum industry and its product,” the statement says.
Aluminium pipe is used in a wide range of products, including electrical and computer equipment, water cooling, and industrial products.
Aluminum pipe also forms part of the exterior of many aircrafts, including commercial jets.
