Well it’s about time…

On Oct 20, 2010, this blog had a post titled, “Vaccine to Burn” talking about the folly of allowing anthrax vaccine to be destroyed because it had exceeded its shelf-life. There are far better alternatives:  offer it to volunteer first responders before it exceeds the shelf-life, extend the shelf-life, or keep it in the stockpile for emergency use.

According to today’s Global Security Newswire, there may be progress in getting it to volunteer first responders before it expires–by far, the best use of this national resource.

That’s good news!
