H1N1 Vaccine Recall

On December 15 the Springfield News-Leader reported that three lots of H1N1 pediatric vaccine had been recalled from the Springfield Greene County Health Department.  H1N1 is commonly referred to as "swine flu."  The issue with these "swine flu" vaccines was not one of safety, but one of potency.  Tests revealed that the potency, or strength, of the recalled vaccines wasn't as high as is preferred.  In all, around 800,000 vaccines were recalled from various suppliers throughout the United States.

There is no concern for the safety of children who received vaccinations from the recalled lots, according to information released from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  Nor do those children need to be re-vaccinated. For more information, contact your local physician or the Springfield Greene County Health Department at (417) 864-1658.
