Sanofi: No reported deaths in Philippines from dengue vaccine

Sanofi said it will continue to focus on six other vaccine projects in development.

"Tama ba ang pag order kaagad ng ganitong karaming vaccine na worth 3.5 billion na naturukan agad ang 733,000 children.Tama ba ito kahit na wala pang kahit na apat na buwan palang nama-manufacture ito tapos nagkaroon ng warning ang Sanofi sa ating government officials?" he said.

More than 730,000 public school children aged 9 and above in three highly endemic Philippine regions have received at least the first dose of Dengvaxia, the first licensed dengue vaccine that is manufactured by Sanofi.

Continued tests over the years showed, however, that those who got the vaccine for preventive purposes - or those who had not been infected before - still faced the risk of getting severe dengue.

However, the Sanofi presentation showed that at the longer term there is an increased risk of hospitalized and severe dengue in the vaccinated people without a prior dengue infection history.

Malacañang assured parents of the learners that no case of severe dengue infection as a result of the vaccine has been recorded by the DoH.

"We assure the public that as per the DoH there is now no reported case of severe dengue infection to the individuals who received one dose of dengue vaccine a year ago", he added. It can still help protect children who previously had Dengue fever.

The WHO, in an advisory on November 30, recommended that Dengvaxia be given only to seropositive individuals, or those who have been infected with the dengue virus.

The secretary said there haven't been any reports of severe dengue infection among those vaccinated, and he noted that the government would profile all those who received the vaccination and heighten its surveillance mechanisms.

It added: "Vaccination should only be recommended when the potential benefits outweigh the potential risks (in countries with high burden of dengue disease)".

It said it "shared this new data in full transparency with the FDA and DOH", referring to the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Health. Aguirre said in Filipino. Lawmakers are also set to investigate the DOH's purchase of vaccine from Sanofi.
