Another H1N1 Vaccine Recall (FluMist)

Maryland-based MedImmune is recalling FluMist doses shipped in October and November after tests showed that it lost strength quickly after shipment. Per the CDC, this is a voluntary and non-safety related recall of 4.7 million doses similar to the one last week by Sanofi Pasteur. I know all indications are that this didn't impact the effectiveness of the vaccine, but I'm sure the anti-vaccine crowd will pounce on this and suggest that the vaccine was rushed and experimental. However, I won't glorify them by linking to them.
