Two more kids vaccinated with Dengvaxia die and 52 others hospitalised
Two more children who were inoculated with anti-dengue vaccine Dengvaxia died on Sunday and 52 others are being treated at the San Lazaro hospital in Manila, The Manila Times Online reported on Monday (Jan 29). Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption founding chairman Dante Jimenez said Sunday he received information about the death of the two children in the provinces of Quezon and Laguna from the joint monitoring team of VACC and the Public Attorney’s Office. “They are now verifying the incidents and the PAO forensics are expected to conduct an autopsy on the victims either today or tomorrow,” said Jimenez in a phone interview with The Manila Times. The latest death toll has brought the number of fatalities linked to Dengvaxia to 13. Jimenez further said that 52 children who were given the vaccine were now confined at the San Larazo hospital in Manila. The figure does not include the children currently confined at the Philippine Children’s Medical Centre and other government hospitals in Metro Manila. Last week, PAO conducted a forensic examination on the 11th suspected Dengvaxia fatality in Caloocan City. The boy, Aejay Bautista, died after a five-day bout with dengue. He was previously vaccinated with Dengvaxis. PAO is preparing documents for the legal actions it plans to take against those responsible for the deaths.
