The Virginia Department of Health says the state received some of the doses of the H1N1 vaccine now being recalled by the manufacturer.
Doctors at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say the manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, initiated the recall after ongoing testing revealed about 800,000 doses of its pediatric H1N1 Vaccine were less potent than intended.
Virginia's Department of Health has confirmed the state received 7,900 of the doses in question. The CDC says despite the recall, the strength of these batches was only slightly below FDA specified limits, and any children who received the doses from the affected batches do not need to be re-vaccinated.
