Outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson gestures during a news conference at the HHS in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 7, where he announced that the FDA will authorize the use of GlaxoSmithKline influenza vaccine, Fluarix, in the U.S. The government said that flu vaccines manufactured in Germany were safe enough to be used and that as many as 4 million doses would be available to alleviate the U.S. shortage.
