The Philippines will seek the return of 3 billion pesos ($59 million) it paid French drugmaker Sanofi for a dengue vaccine used to immunize hundreds of thousands of children that Sanofi has said could worsen the disease in some cases.
This was all depopulation process vaccines are poison.
“We will demand the refund of the 3 billion (pesos) paid for the Dengvaxia and (demand) that Sanofi set up an indemnification fund to cover the hospitalization and medical treatment of all children who might have severe dengue,” Health Secretary Francisco Duque told reporters on Friday.
The Philippines last week suspended a national immunization program after Sanofi’s recent findings that there was a risk of severe dengue occurring in previously uninfected people who were inoculated with Dengvaxia. Manila also halted sale of the vaccine in the country and has ordered a probe into the matter.
Duque said the number of children, ages 9 and above, inoculated with Dengvaxia has risen to about 830,000 from an initial estimate of nearly 734,000 after further verification by the Department of Health.
The state program, which was launched in 2016, cost 3.5 billion pesos and Duque earlier said the government has already paid 3 billion pesos to Sanofi. Sanofi’s Philippines office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
