Oh no... not more contaminated vaccines!

Oh here we go again.  Just this past March, the FDA announced finding contamination the rotavirus vaccine, Rotarix.  Now, the FDA announced they found more contamination in the other rotavirus vaccine, Rotateq.    If you read the CNN article, they say that the benefits still outweigh the risks and they still recommend giving the vaccine.  Ha... good luck convincing my patient pool...

Well, I have to admit that our office doesn't even carry the rotavirus vaccine so mute point.  However... this certainly will not help me convince patients to get vaccinated.
