Infant vaccine at center of recall demand
Critics of a vaccine given to infants are calling for a major recall, warning it contains traces of a deadly virus.
The vaccine is given to infants to prevent severe diarrhea. Critics say it contains traces of a virus known to kill baby pigs.
?It would stand to reason that there?s a possibility that this harm could transfer over to human beings,? childhood vaccine awareness activist Rita Palma says.
The Food and Drug Administration, however, says RotaTeq is safe.
The National Vaccine Information Center says it wants Merck to voluntarily recall RotaTeq.
