Reason #972, 461 Against Government Health Care

A great example of what happens when the government gets involved with anything - in a rush to get enough vaccines for the swine flu, it sounds as if they bought the cheap stuff from the bottom shelf....
Hundreds of thousands of swine flu shots for children have been recalled because tests indicate the vaccine doses lost some strength, government health officials said Tuesday.

The recall is for about 800,000 pre-filled syringes intended for young children, ages 6 months to nearly 3 years. The shots, made by Sanofi Pasteur, were distributed across the country last month and most have already been used, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Doctors were notified of the voluntary recall on Tuesday. Dr. Anne Schuchat, a CDC flu expert, stressed that parents don't need to do anything or to worry. The vaccine is still safe, she said. (Yahoo News)

Of course the vaccine is still safe - they were given a watered-down dosage!
