The U.S. Centers for Diseases Control and prevention has said the risk appears to fall off after 42 days, and the last Minnesota patient to receive an injection from the tainted lots got it about 48 days ago. But Danila said 42 days is just a guideline, and the experts can't be certain yet when the risk will be over.

"We're still not out of the woods yet," he said.
