Dr. Obukhanych’s petition about baker’s yeast-recombinant technology in vaccines

Tetyana Obukhanych, Ph.D. submitted a petition to the WA State Department of Health to request implementing additional informed-consent and safety-monitoring safeguards for yeast-recombinant vaccines, such as the Hepatitis B vaccine.  Her petition was denied.
Below is the correspondence between Dr. Obukhanych and the Department.  She posted a Commentary on the denial of the petition and her scientifically-referenced educational article “Gastrointestinal food allergy to baker’s yeast after receiving yeast-recombinant Hepatitis B vaccine” on her website.
