Flu vax ban for under 5s in Australia - Page 2

post #21 of 23
One of the other theories going around here is improper storage conditions. We had a huge storm here in Perth at the end of March where power was out for hours, even a day or more, in many locations throughout the city. So, there's some talk that this affected the quality of the vaccines.

At my grandparents drs they ran out of flu vaxs for this reason, apparently there is a shortage and they are only just catching up. It wouldnt suprise me in the least, my mother works as a nurse and one year they had a vax clinic, they forgot about one of the boxes and it had been sitting in the sun all day. They told my mum it would be ok, but she refused it and stired up a big fuss over it.

Ah, DH and I were just talking about this yesterday and he said he wondered if it was a break in the cold chain either changing the nature of the vaccine components or allowing bacterial growth.
