Recently, 2 children died and 12 fell ill after receiving the measles vaccine at a government health center in Muzaffarpur, India. Lalita Singh, a civil surgeon, has ordered an inquiry into the sad incident.
Thankfully, other children who were given the same measles vaccine are safe.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time children have died or been hurt, in India, after vaccination. It’s also not the first time children in a third world have died from vaccinations.
