Swine flu jab

Swine flu jab

The Chinese government has denied that the swine flu vaccine was to blame for a number of miscarriages suffered by women who received the jab, state media reported yesterday.
The denial comes amid a mass vaccination campaign launched in China to curb the spread of A(H1N1) influenza and ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays, when millions of people travel to visit loved ones, boosting the risk of outbreaks.
About 10,000 pregnant women have so far received the vaccine and "several" have had miscarriages, the director of the Chinese center for Disease Control and Prevention, Liang Xiaofeng, was quoted by the China Daily as saying.
