LONDON The pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline says it has advised medical staff in Canada to not use one batch of swine flu vaccine for fear it may trigger life-threatening allergies.
GlaxoSmithKline spokeswoman Gwenan White said Tuesday the company issued the advice after reports that one batch of the swine flu vaccine might have caused more allergic reactions than normal.
She says the affected batch contains 172,000 doses of the vaccine. She declined to say how many doses had been administered before the advice to stop using them was given.

Life-Threatening ‘Allergy Risk’
Let me know when Obama’s kids get their shots. Then I might consider the same for my own.
Now, now. Nothing to see here. Please stay in the correct line for the vaccine. That’s it, keep moving forward. Next.
Anyone who takes a swine flu shot is a FOOL.
Give to your kid and to me you can be committing murder.
thnx for the clarity x
i still ain’t taking it though
no, i know. i was watching for when/if his daughters got it, though.
by the way, love your tagline! and i imagine you backing up as you say that too! LOL!
i wish i had the cash to print 1,000 of those taglines on tee shirts.
i’m holding my ankles!
seriously, i have to say the president has certainly lowered the bar for decorum of tactful interactions here at FR though
i’m mixing off color metaphors, and lots of folks have flat out quit on being polite or tactful in “language” in their appraisal of the federal government ~ who can blame ‘em
i guess it’s good to vent!!!!!!!
I had H1N1 and they gave me Tamiflu. It worked pretty good. When the nurse or Doctor offers anything like this (pneumonia vaccine, flu vaccine, etc...) ask the nurse if they’re taking it. I’ve never had one say yes.
I felt itchy after mine...
