Tuesday, December 15, 2009, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced a non safety recall of selected batches of pediatric H1N1 vaccine made by Sanofi Pasteur.

The affected pediatric H1N1 vaccine for children age 6 months to 35-months is being voluntarily recalled because its strength is just below acceptable limits.

Parents are reminded this is not a safety recall and no action is necessary.

Children who received vaccine from these batches do not need to be revaccinated.

Frequently Asked Questions

Parents are reminded to ensure that their children (6 months through 9 years) follow the recommended guidelines to receive the second dose of H1N1 vaccine spaced at least 28 days from the first dose.
