Swine flu vaccine recall

The New York Times has reported that, “Sanofi-aventis,” a producer of one type of swine flu vaccine has recalled 800,000 doses of the vaccine due to lack of potency.

The doses being recalled are low dose vaccines intended for babies between 6 and 35 months of age.

However, most of the doses have most likely already been administered to babies. Dr. Schuchat, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases has stated, “We think children who got the vaccine are fully protected, assuming they got the two shots we recommended for that age.”
