The government released information on Saturday that two people in China have died after receiving the H1N1 Swine Flu vaccination.
Last week, Digital Journal reported that a Virginia teen was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome. A German news outlet released information that a French teenage girl was also diagnosed with the paralysis syndrome. Now, according to China Daily, two Chinese people have died from the H1N1 Swine Flu vaccine.
The government issued a statement on Saturday saying that the two Chinese citizens died after receiving a domestically manufactured H1N1 vaccine. A preliminary report concludes that one of the victims suffered a sudden cardiac death, however the results of the second victim are still being processed, reports the Sunday Pioneer.
A spokesperson for the Health Ministry, Deng Haihua, said, according to Channel News Asia, “Specialists say that it is unavoidable that several serious adverse reactions will happen amid the more than 10 million people who have received the vaccine, and the 20, 30, 150 million who will in the future.”
As the Associated Press notes, China’s Health Ministry has stated that 43 deaths have occurred from the Swine Flu and more than 65,000 cases have been reported.
