Two babies die minutes after receiving the MMR vaccination! … one allegedly without parental consent & in spite of the mother’s protest

The head of the Ministry of Health in Samoa has ordered the immediate recall of all measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines after the deaths of two one-year-olds.

The children were given the MMR vaccine on Friday at Safotu Hospital on the island of Savai’i. However within minutes they were dead. One child was allegedly immunised without the mother’s consent – and despite her protesting.

Health Ministry CEO Dr Take Naseri says a full investigation is underway into the deaths. All MMR vaccines in Samoa have been ordered to be seized and the staff involved have been stood down, TV1 Samoa reports.
