QUANG TRI (VNS) — Central Quang Tri Province on Monday announced that the death of a three-year-old kid, who died on Sunday after receiving a Quinvaxem vaccine, was not caused by the vaccination.

The kid received the injection on November 5. However, 16 hours later he reported a fever and swelling at the injection site, the province's Preventive Health Centre said.

The child was sent to several medical stations before being admitted to Huong Hoa District's General Hospital on November 10, where he later died.

The post-mortem indicated that the child had contracted serious pneumonia, according to the director of the centre. — VNS
