Spoiled Vaccine

Flu vaccine spoils in hospital's refrigerator

A Wisconsin hospital is blaming a faulty fridge for ruining nearly 19-hundred doses of flu vaccine, the second time in a month the facility has had to dump hundreds of doses. A hospital official says the egg-based vaccine spoiled after a refrigerator broke down. More than a-thousand patients and hospital workers who got the bad doses will get revaccinated. Last month, the hospital had to dump more than 22-hundred shots that were mixed in with a delivery of computer parts and not refrigerated.
