We interrupt your holidays with this important announcement

Because I have a grandchild under the age of 1 this is important! Business Week magazine broke this story late this afternoon. I haven't seen it mentioned in the news anywhere.

If you have a child that has been given the Hib vaccination in the last six months you need to contact your child's doctor. It seems that tests are showing sterility problems associated with this vaccine in Pennsylvania. Contamination of some sort has occurred and Merck is recalling the drug. Over a million doses were given in recent months. The CDC is asking concerned parents to contact their doctors.

If you are concerned about vaccinations in general, this should really make you take notice.
