H1N1 Flu Vaccine Recall!

There is an alarming story circulating on major news networks and online about the recall of 800,000 units  of H1N1 flu vaccine for children six months to 35 months. You can view the CNN story here. Apparently, the doses in question tested at the proper potency initially, but recently tested at 12%  below the minimum required level. According to the CNN News story, parents are being told they should do “absolutely nothing” by CDC spokesperson Tom Skinner.

The article goes on to say a representative from the vaccine manufacturer indicated that in previous studies, vaccines with only half of the recommended dosage still offer enough immunity to be effective. Wait a minute…. does anyone else have a problem with this? They tell us we must get this vaccine, our young children MUST get two doses, and now the CDC and the manufacturer are telling us something totally different. If a lesser dosage will do, then why not offer less vaccine?

For me, the recall opens up a can of worms almost too big to fit into this post. Is big pharma selling us more vaccine than we need? Is the government aware of it and in cahoots? Is the real issue that the CDC would rather the remaining vaccines go to those who haven’t received any vaccination yet, rather than to those who may now have some immunity? What does this mean for asthmatic children or other high risk groups who may not be fully protected?

Tell me, what do you think of the H1N1 vaccine recall? Are there any implications for you and your children?

  1. “Is the real issue that the CDC would rather the remaining vaccines go to those who haven’t received any vaccination yet, rather than to those who may now have some immunity? ”

    There is no shortage of H1N1 vaccine. And there is no such thing as flu vaccines offering *partial* immunity. These failed to work, it’s nothing new.

    “What does this mean for asthmatic children or other high risk groups who may not be fully protected?”

    They didn’t need the shot in the first place?

  2. I’m not panicked about the recall, but then again, I’m not vaccinating my children with it, either. They rush the vaccine into the market fast-tracked courtesy of the FDA, the manufacturer(s) have immunity for their product, including all adjuvants, from any serious adverse event that may arise, including death. The wave has peaked and I’m not concerned about any other wave coming up again. Should it do so however, H1N1 has already proven to be far more milder than the regular seasonal flu. I’m not buying into this alarming pandemic the same way I didn’t buy into avian flu, SARS, and bird flu. Seriously, watch your diet, watch your children’s diet, get plenty of rest and exercise. Most will fare just fine, until the government’s next fallacy.

  3. i am glad they did a recall. i wish i had never gotten the vaccine. i was pregnant with 3 babies no ivf or fertility help. i had a missed miscarriage with all of them 2 weeks later. so have many other moms where i live. come to find out i didnt know flamaldehyde was in the shots. that chemical was used in disecting when i was in jr. high…im allergic to it.
