Thank the trial lawyers for the flu vaccine shortage

According to the Kerry partisans it's George Bush's fault and the Johns have a plan. The truth is that only four firms are left in the US that make vaccines and none of them make the flu variety. When Chiron PLC of the UK found that its vaccine was contaminated 47% of the US supply disappeared overnight. Why are there so few US firms in the vaccine business?

Here is an excellent article from the Weekly Standard that puts the blame much closer to John Edwards than George Bush.
