800,000 H1N1 vaccine doses for young children recalled

Current news updates, World current news
One of the five manufacturers supplying H1N1 vaccine to the U.S is recalling hundreds of thousands of flu shots because they aren't as strong as they should be.

The French manufacturer Sanofi Pasteur is voluntarily recalling around 800,000 doses of vaccine meant for children between the ages of 6 months and 35 months.

The company as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention emphasized that the recall was not prompted by safety concerns, and that even though the vaccine isn't quite as potent as it's supposed to be, children who received it don't have to be immunized again against H1N1.

The CDC emphasized that there is no danger for any child who received this kind of vaccine.When asked what parents must do, CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said, "absolutely nothing." He said if children receive this vaccine, they will be fine.
