Bad batch of H1N1 vaccine


The pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline says it has advised medical staff in Canada to not use one batch of H1N1 flu vaccine for fear it may trigger life-threatening allergies.

A spokesman says the affected batch contains 172-thousand doses of the vaccine.

She declined to say how many doses had been administered before the advice to stop using them was given.
