800,000 H1N1 vaccine doses recalled

It's no surprise that we're already seeing a recall of 800,000 H1N1 vaccines. Fortunately, this recall isn't due to any safety concerns. Rather, this recall is occurring because the vaccine doses are not considered "potent" as they should be. According to CNN:
The French manufacturer Sanofi Pasteur is voluntarily recalling about 800,000 doses of vaccine meant for children between the ages of 6 months and 35 months... The CDC emphasized that there is no danger for any child who received this type of vaccine... When asked what parents should do, CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said, "absolutely nothing." He said if children receive this vaccine, they will be fine.
So, if your child got the vaccine, you don't need to do anything. To learn more about this recall, visit the CDC website.
