Dear teacher,

The nationwide shortage of flu vaccine dominated the presidential campaigns for a second day today, an issue that prompted sharp critiques from Senator John Kerry and quick parries from President Bush, whose administration announced arrangements for the delivery of more than two million additional dosages of vaccine.

Q : I think "parried" is correct voice in the sentence, isn't it?

All the best,
