Note: This is unacceptable. Or should be. The vaccines were “from WHO and of the highest quality” - insert eye roll. Possibly so - the highest quality vaccine for many of our children was the equivalent of a bullet in the head. And vaccination program will continue. Of course. There's no need to stop a worldwide money maker just because 25 or so children got sick enough to go to the hospital taking a product that is supposed to keep them out of the hospital. Madness. And guess what was blame for the sickness. Not the vaccine. Madness. Literally. Hysteria. The emotion usually reserved for women.
Hailakandi: As many as 25 students of Sahabad ME Madrassa, around 25km from here, under Katlicherra revenue circle in Hailakandi district of south Assam fell sick after being administered measles-rubella vaccine on Saturday.
Hailakandi deputy commissioner Adil Khan has ordered a probe to be headed by joint director of health ser vices Dr Avijit Basu and district immunization officer (DIO) Dr K.Thambalsena. They have been asked to submit a report to the deputy commissioner immediately.
Katlicherra legislator Suzamuddin Laskar, district development commissioner F.R. Laskar, additional deputy commissioner E.L. Fairhiem, circle officer James Aind and other officials visited the school and the block primary health centre (PHC) to take stock of the situation.
Following the vaccination, just after the mid-day meal, several students complained of nausea, fever, stomachache and vomiting and had to be admitted to the nearest Katlicherra Block PHC.
Basu, who rushed to the site, said six students have been hospitalised, while the rest were being kept under observation and would be discharged soon. Read more here.
