Dose 'em up! Children with developing brains need 2 swine flu vaccines

The literally dozens of vaccines your child receives by the time he or she enters grade school just isn't enough. Not only does your child need two swine flu vaccines, but two seasonal flu vaccines as well. If your children aren't drooling all over themselves and talking gibberish and banging their heads into their cereal bowls, then you're an evil, neglectful parent and worse, unpatriotic.

    The vaccine maker Sanofi Pasteur says tests of its swine flu vaccine suggest that children under 10 may need two doses to be fully protected.

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Wednesday's news is not surprising. This age group needs two doses of regular seasonal vaccine for full immunity to develop.

    Federal officials have been hoping that one shot or squirt of nasal spray would do, so they can stretch the available supply of a vaccine much in demand.
