Two Children Die, 11 Other Fainted During Vaccination In Bara
December 21, 2016

BARA, 21 December: At least two children died and eleven others were fainted apparently due to the reaction of anti-polio vaccines administered to them at a medical camp set up by non-government organization CERD in Shalobar area here on Wednesday.

According to local residents, the children were administered vaccines in order to protect them from different diseases including measles and polio.

They added that after vaccination, condition of a number of children became deteriorated who were rushed to Hayatabad Medical Complex (HMC). However, two children including a seven-month old Abu Bakar, son of Farmanullah and another seven-month old baby Musa, whose family had come from Jamrud subdivision as guest, died.

The rest of the children were treated at the hospital and were discharged later.

Meanwhile, Musa’s uncle Azizullah told TNN that his nephew died due to the reaction of anti-polio vaccine as they didn’t administer anything else to the child.

However, Agency Surgeon Dr. Niaz denied accepting that the child died due to apparent reaction of anti-polio vaccine.

He said that the child was born premature and he had fits too. He said apart from Musa, not a single child was given polio vaccine. He argued that the polio vaccine was totally safe even if it was expired.

Dr. Niaz informed that the sample of the vaccine had been sent to Islamabad for a forensic examination.

The local administration has taken the officials of the non-government organization who were administering anti-measles vaccine to children, into custody and has started investigation into the matter. However, it is yet to be confirmed that the death of two children was caused by which vaccine.
