Sanofi Pasteur H1N1 Recall?

A French drug maker named Sanofi-Aventis is recalling four lots of the pediatric H1N1 swine flu vaccine made by the company's Sanofi-Pasteur division because it isn't as potent as needed.
Sanofi Pasteur should have been more careful about stuff like this.

They are saying that children less than 10 years old who have only received one dose of vaccine so far should still receive a second. My kid is under 10 and I don't know if he needs to be vaccinated again.
How do I find out if the H1N1 Recall affects my kids?

There is no safety concern regarding the vaccine, and children who already have been vaccinated with the H1N1 shot from the lots won't need to be revaccinated.

Officials elsewhere are also reviewing paperwork to see if they are affected. The manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, has asked for unused doses to be returned.

The pre-filled syringes manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur are intended for young children, ages 6 months to 35 months. They were shipped in mid- and late-November and early December.
These h1n1 vaccines were distributed within Detroit and 38 Michigan counties.
