The link between cases of child deaths and immunization against polio is untrue, - reported the press service of the Ministry of Health.
"Ministry of Health of Ukraine has all the necessary conclusions of the Regional Rapid Response Group and the Central Commission regarding the investigation of adverse events following immunization, made in compliance with all procedures and regulations stipulated by the law. It shows that the child's death, which coincided with the period of supplementary immunization against polio is not linked to vaccination.” – stated in the message.
We recall, earlier media circulated information about General Prosecutor's Office confirmed the fact of connection between the cases of children’s deaths and immunization against polio.
The Ministry of Health intends to appeal to the General Prosecutor's Office with the requirement to provide an explanation regarding this situation separately.
