HOUSE COMMITTEE EXAMINES FLU VACCINE SHORTAGE

Dr. Julie L. Gerberding, Director, CDC, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Dr. Lester M. Crawford, Acting Commissioner, FDA (L to R) appear before the House Government Reform Committee to discuss the nation's flue vacine shortage on Capitol Hill in Washington on Oct. 8, 2004. The supply of flu shots was dramatically cut after a major manufacturer in Great Britain was forced to pull its vaccine due to bacterial contamination. (UPI Photo/Roger L. Wollenberg)
