For Your Information: 800,000 Swine Flu Shots Recalled

- By Bossip Staff

About 800,000 doses of the H1N1 vaccine for kids have been recalled for being ‘too weak’:

ATLANTA – 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. The issue is the vaccine’s strength. Tests done before the shots were shipped showed that the vaccines were strong enough. But tests done weeks later indicated the strength had fallen slightly below required levels. Why the potency dropped isn’t clear. Children in that age group are supposed to get two doses, spaced about a month apart. Health officials don’t think children need to get vaccinated again, even if they got two doses from the same lots, said Schuchat.

Swine flu vaccine has been available since early October, and since then manufacturers have released about 95 million doses for distribution in the United States.

The recalled shots were made by Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of France-based Sanofi-Aventis Group. The company reported the potency findings to the government officials and did a voluntary recall. A Sanofi Pasteur representative could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.

Sanofi Pasteur bills itself as the No. 1 manufacturer of flu vaccines in the world. It makes flu vaccine at sites in France and in Pennsylvania.

Hmmmm…remember when that lady was walking backwards due to the swine flu vaccination?? SMH.

    Stay far far away from these type of new vaccinations…Most vaccinations take YEARS to be approved for human use…Why not this one??

    Keep yourself well by keeping your hands washed and use bleach and warm water solutions to keep surfaces clean from germs!!! No vaccinations needed against swine flu…That’s all.

  • MzzQ2u

    ok now this buttery bull-shit. That’s why I don’t take no shots – I do not trust these people not one bit. Just pass that natural and I’m cured of any ailment!

    too weak!?!?!?
    on november, canada recalled over 100,000 becuase of side effects that people experienced from the vaccine.
    btw dont get ANY vaccines because your gov’t wants to kill ya’ll to get a new world order!! Trust me on that!!

    omg cut the ignorant bs/govt paranoia… the h1n1 vaccine is based on the same science as the seasonal flu vaccine they just insert a different viral strain into the mix. there are MANY drugs that lose their potency if improperly stored or handled so this recall is no big deal especially if they’re not even recommending people get revaccinated.

    @ denne
    the H1N1 virus was biologically engineered just like the spanish flu and HIV/AIDS. Furthermore, the h1n1 and seasonflu vaccine have mercury, anti-freeze, and other poisonous ingredients! People should just get their Vitamin D and eat healthy and then they’ll be fine.

    It’s funny I was just a volunteering for school at a free H1N1 clinic this past weekend over 6,000 people showed up with their children ready to get them vaccinated. I don’t believe i vaccinations if it is meant to be I will get the swine flu..otherwise people just keep healthy by washing your hands,using sanitizers, and don’t share drinks with anyone you just never know what kind of germs they got!!

  • drenk

  • THE ALMIGHTY TRUTH

    DO NOT TAKE THE SHOT!!!

    @Really Tho

    People should read more for real. You should SEE all of the things that are in that virus! Man, I have never seen so many strands of nonsense in a virus in my life!

    Me and my boy, who attended law school, looked at the make-up of H1N1….and the FIRST thing we both said is:”This a man-made virus!”

    It’s impossible for something like H1N1 to develop on it’s own…and like you said, people just believe this stuff is natural.

    *smh*

    Which is exactly why I won’t ever take a flu shot-you are basically given yourself the virus through the shot-WTF sense does that make-if I don’t have it I won’t be puttn it in my body on my own!

  • b'more

    800,000???? i’m telling you, folks, DO NOT take that vaccine. this is the Unites States we’re talking about. “conspiracy theorists” are NOT crazy. don’t put anything past this government. that vaccine is a trojan horse. don’t take it, don’t let your kids take it either.

    funny, but, correct me if i’m wrong, AIDS had pretty much the same beginning, and the government went down the same “vaccination” road they’re traveling now. something to think about.

  • Really Tho

    Look at where this is taking place, Atlanta. What is the African American population there?

    “Look at where this is taking place, Atlanta. What is the African American population there?

    Hmmmmm.”

    No Atlanta conspiracy here my friend. The report came from the CDC office *in Atlanta* – they’re not saying that this problem is exclusive to Atlanta.

  • yumi

  • itamike

    The incompetence/corruption here is blatant and yet we don’t see this anywhere.

    It is true that vaccines take years to be approved for human use but they are no different then the seasonal flu vaccine that we use for years.The vaccine can save lives our children lives so why take a risk?
    If you worried about getting the vaccine you should read this new H1N1 update at http://www.isrameds.com “According to Health officials there is a major increase in the vaccination production.”
