Recall of H1N1 Vaccines

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced a recall for over 750,000 H1N1 vaccines for children ranging in age from six months to three years. Sanofi Pasteur, the manufacturer of the vaccine, is recalling all doses due to four batches having been found to have a limited potency. The CDC is reassuring all parents that the recall has nothing to do with any safety hazards and that they keep a high standard in routinely checking up on their vaccines. Infants who have already received the vaccine do not need to be revaccinated due to the vaccines potency being slightly below the required range. CDC reinforces to all parents that they highly recommend children ten years and younger should have two doses of the vaccine.
