Hey, stop worrying about a massive government takeover of health care.
Youre in good hands:
Health officials are recalling hundreds of thousands of doses of swine flu vaccine after tests indicated they may not be potent enough to protect against the virus.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified doctors about the recall Tuesday. The recall involves about 800,000 doses made by Sanofi Pasteur. The doses are pre-filled syringes intended for young children, ages 6 months to almost three years.
Health officials say its not clear how many doses have already been given, but they dont think children need to be re-vaccinated. The lots passed potency tests when they were first shipped, but tests indicate the potency waned after.
I opted not to have one - so did my Wife.
I just don’t trust the government enough to believe that it was ever necessary.
Great....they don’t even know how it’s mixed and they want people to give it to their kids. These people are fools.
What? It’s not killing fast enough?
Wonderful, this will make parents pleased with their decision to allow the shots.
Why do we never get ALL the facts from the government run agencies?
And some Americans want these bozos in DC to run healthcare?
This government gets scarier and scarier the more it trys to intrude into our lives. Oust ‘em All!
It’s probably why the government downgraded the seriousness of the outbreak a week or so back.
Obama can’t blame this one on Bush.
Remember how Hillary went after Bush for the terrible shortage of flu vaccine a few years ago? Nary a word in the MSM now; just be patient and wait your turn.
Take the pain reliever instead of getting the surgery. So speaketh TOTUS.
Unbelievable hype, fret and worry.
Sorry for those who died as a result of it, but they were mostly afflicted with other maladies.
I say, when the government wants to push these things on me, they go first!!!
My brother and his wife, both physicians, have refused to take the flu shots. You can interpret this any way you want.
These people couldn’t find their Biden with both hands.
Earlier articles said that it was Sebelius who decreed that prefilled syringes must be used.
That made it much more expensive, was responsible for much of the delay, and now evidently made the vaccine useless.
Too bad Killer Tiller isn’t still around, so Kathleen could consult her good friend and financial supporter on these and other health issues.
But I thought the government had everything perfect and would save us all from this pandemic....
