800K Children's H1N1 Vaccines Recalled

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate was the question among most American parents this fall, when the government recommended that all children, from 6 months and up, receive the H1N1 vaccine.

Vivian Manning-Schaffel: And after most parents made their decision one way or the other, a further monkey wrench was thrown into their program when French-based manufacturer Sanofi-Aventis recalled a whopping 800,000 H1N1 vaccines designed for children between the ages of 6 months and a month shy of 3 because, according to this article on, "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."

Because these vaccines were released here in the U.S. last month, tons of kids under 3 have already received the weak vaccines. Oh-so-fortunately, the CDC is saying this snafu is really no big deal -- the vaccines are in no way harmful. Parents of kids under 3 should just make sure their babies get the second, supplemental vaccine they are supposed to have a month after the first one to arm against the virus.

I'm sure this is fueling the fire of many parents who initially opposed the vaccine, for various reasons, in the first place.

Me? I'm not really wigged out at all. My older kid had what his doc suspected was H1N1 last spring and, although it wasn't much different than your run-of-the-mill flu, it was nasty enough for me to want to try and spare him -- and his 2-year-old sister -- another round. That said, I have no regrets in the least, and plan on hooking them both up with their "booster" H1N1 vaccines.

What do you guys think? Does this make you more skeptical of the vaccine?
