Indian ethics journal pushes for ban on Crucell vaccine

An Indian medical ethics journal has criticized the World Health Organization for promoting the use of a Crucell vaccine that has been suspended in other countries. Vietnam suspended use of the pentavalent vaccine, Quinvaxem, following the deaths of children who received the shot. No link has been established between the vaccine and the deaths, but the Indian journal still wants to ban Quinvaxem. Item
