Some Vaccine in Latest Recall Administered by Oneida County Health Department
“Potency of Nasal Spray Vaccine in Question –Safety Not an Issue ”
The Oneida County Health Department’s current supply of H1N1 flu vaccine will not be affected by the latest voluntary manufacturer’s recall of the product, Daniel W. Gilmore, Acting Director of the department said.
“For the second time, one of four manufacturers producing the nation’s supply of H1N1 vaccine has voluntarily withdrawn certain batches of their product because of concerns that it had lost some potency since its manufacture,” Gilmore said. He continued, “However, in this instance about 400 doses of the vaccine were administered by the Health Department beginning in October, but none remains in our inventory at this time.”
