According to the province’s Center for Disease Control (CDC), the teens were hospitalized for symptoms ranging from nausea and high fevers to breathing difficulties — with 17 children exhibiting severe reactions.
Vu Van Chinh, director of the Ha Trung District General Hospital, said side effects following vaccination are normal but are more likely to happen in children than adults.
Luong Ngoc Truong, director of the CDC, said although the province stopped using the current vaccine batch, “We still have other batches, also Pfizer vaccines, so we will continue vaccinating the children.”
The suspended batch was put into storage and could be used later for other groups like adults, Truong added.
Last week, four workers in Thanh Hoa’s Kim Viet shoe factory died after receiving the Vero Cell COVID vaccine, authorized in May by the World Health Organization for emergency use. The deaths were attributed to an “overreaction to the vaccine.”’https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/teens-hospitalized-dead-pfizer-vaccine-vietnam/?utm_source=salsa&eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=acf39135-e53d-48d8-8e6e-a788088ae0c7
