The vaccines were duds, ruined by poor refrigeration.</td>

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">In one recent case in Sioux City, Iowa, more than 1,000 families were notified by letter and telephone that they needed to get their children revaccinated. State officials found that the refrigerator at the clinic that administered the shots repeatedly dropped below freezing over a 17-month period in 2005 and 2006, potentially ruining the vaccines stored there.<br><br>
"We just didn't notice it," said Dr. Ray Sturdevant, president of the Prairie Pediatrics and Adolescent Clinic.<br><br>
Poor refrigeration has been blamed for similar problems elsewhere around the country over the past 2 1/2 years:<br><br>
-- In St. Cloud, Minn., a clinic had to revaccinate 8,600 patients, most of them children.<br><br>
-- In Lane County, Ore., 500 children and adults had to get another shot.<br><br>
-- In western Florida, it happened to about 250 kids.</td>

That's a heck of a lot of people affected by this... and imagine the ones for whom they don't even know that the vaccines weren't stored properly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

*sigh*<br><br>
all the negatives of a vax with none of the "benefits". What more could you want <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

That just happened in St Cloud, MN. The kids who had to get revaccinated where the kids who had any shots between July of 2006 and August 2007 (I think those are the right dates- I know it was a whole year's worth of vaccines). This clinic had been sited 14(?) times for not having the temp right within that year. I mean, come on, if you're being sited for not having the temp right, why would it take you a whole year to figure out the vax's were bad?!

Ah, yes, in case one does not have enough arguments against routine vaccination, another pops up!
