The federal government is moving forward with new flu vaccines for the
upcoming season. This is a vaccine for the flu strain the government feels
is most likely to infect the largest number of people in the United States
this year. This vaccine will be different from the Swine Flu vaccine in
a few ways, but the most important seems to be the testing requirements.
In a back door deal to make the Swine Flu vaccine available as quickly
as possible it appears the manufacturers have gotten at least partial
immunity from the federal government for negligent actions on their part.
So if they mess up the formula while preparing the vaccine and a person
suffers an injury as a result, that person’s rights to recovery
may very well be in jeopardy.
