article imageMother loses child after H1N1 vaccine, government denies relation

Chumphon - In the Chumphon's Lang Suan district of Thailand, a mother has lost her child, which she feels is related to the government's national vaccination for the H1N1 swine flu.
This week, a Thailand mother submitted a complaint to the local police authorities after her foetus died, which she feels is in relation to the H1N1 swine flu vaccine, according to Asia One. Currently, the Public Health Ministry is investigating the case and the results will be revealed next week.
The father of the six-month-old foetus said that he and his wife were devastated by the loss of their child, which he says she nearly died from trauma. The foetus was reportedly healthy and had no signs of disease or birth defects that would have caused a miscarriage.
There have been several other instances within the last month but the Thailand Public Health Ministry have said there is no link between the H1N1 vaccinations and deaths of foetuses, reports Xinhua.
One other case involved a fetal death five days after the mother received an inoculation where the unborn baby had a brain haemorrhage, while another case of a miscarriage happened in the southern province of Satun but it is believed she lost the baby due to her smoking marijuana.
MCOT English News notes that if a patient becomes allergic to the vaccine then medical personnel monitor the situation closely and establish if there was a relation to the vaccine.
