infant vaccine recall

infant meningitis vaccine recall

There was a national news notification today about an infant meningitis vaccine recall from the power-house drug company, Merek (sp??).
I called my child's doctor & they told me that they didn't use the one in question. I asked the nurse, "How would I know -- had it been that one? I mean, what would his symptoms be like?" She told me that they look for redness at the injection site. But didn't give any other details on the recall.
The news report vaguely stated that the 'batch' of that vaccine was contaminated. What ever that means. But, I'm just writing to get the word out & let other Mom's know what I've heard. I hope your nurse will tell you all is well too!
