Singapore stops using flu vaccines after 48 people died in South...
Singapore temporarily stopped using two influenza vaccines as a precautionary measure after the deaths of some people given them in South Korea. This makes Singapore one of the first countries to publicly announce the discontinuation of vaccines.

South Korea reported that 48 died on Saturday after being vaccinated against the flu, but said the state vaccination program would continue as no direct link between the deaths and the vaccinations was found.

No deaths related to influenza vaccinations have been reported in Singapore so far, but the decision to stop using SKYCellflu Quadrivalent and VaxigripTetra was a precautionary measure, the Department of Health and Health Sciences Authority (HAS) said in a statement late Sunday.

The HSA is liaising with the South Korean authorities for more information to determine if the deaths are related to influenza vaccinations.

SKYCellflu Quadrivalent is manufactured by SK Bioscience in South Korea and sold locally by AJ Biologics, while VaxigripTetra is manufactured by Sanofi and sold locally by Sanofi Aventis.

Two other influenza vaccines brought to Singapore for the northern hemisphere’s 2020-21 influenza season could still be used, according to Singapore health officials.
