Kid's Swine Flu Vaccine Recalled

FROM NBC: H1N1 vaccine manufacturer Sanofi Pastuer has issued a recall for 800 thousand doses of pediatric vaccine, however they stress it is *not* a safety issue. Sanofi routinely tests its vaccine after it has been distributed to doctors. During one of these tests they found the potency of the vaccine for children six to thirty-five months had dropped below the recommended limit.

Further tests found four lots, or roughly 800 thousand doses, were affected.
Most of the vaccine had not been administered. Children who did receive the vaccine do not face any increased health risks -- and are likely still protected from swine flu. A spokesman for Sanofi Pastuer say no action is needed other than returning unused doses. Experts say this should not impact vaccine supply.
