4 infants die after vaccination

Aurangabad: Four infants died and six others were in a critical state after they were administered measles vaccination by the Zilla Parishad health department officials in a village here on Friday, official sources said.

Of the 10 children vaccinated in the drive at Waghola village in the district here, three died on Friday night and one on Saturday. Soon after the vaccine was given, the children began vomiting. They were admitted to a primary healthcare centre from where they were shifted to the Government Medical College and Hospital owing to deteriorating health, the sources said. The vaccination drive was immediately.

The sources said the vaccines under the batch number MV1726 were purchased from the Serum Institute, Pune. The date of manufacture was given as July 2008 and expiry date as 2010.

Vaccination drive at all centres under the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation has also been suspended with immediate effect until Monday next. — PTI

CORRECTIONS AND CLARIFICATIONS

A sentence in the second paragraph of a PTI report "4 infants die after vaccination" (Early editions, September 28, 2008, page 1) was "The vaccination drive was immediately." It was an editing error. It should have been "The vaccination drive was immediately suspended after the deaths."
