If you haven't had dengue infection, don't use our vaccine, drug company warns

French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi Pasteur on Wednesday admitted clinical data showed Dengvaxia - the first licensed dengue vaccine - could make the disease worse in people who had not previously been infected with the virus.

The office of the Philippine president vowed to hold accountable those responsible for the dengue immunisation programme, which said it placed lives at risk.

Malacañang has assured the public that those responsible in the P3.5-billion dengue vaccine fiasco it called a "shameless public health scam" will be held accountable.

At least 700,000 learners have been received the vaccine.

The immunisation program is in line with the recommendation of the World Health Organization for mass vaccination in highly endemic countries, health officials said on Friday.

Spread by mosquitoes, dengue can cause a fever, a severe headache, muscle and joint pain, but more severe and ailments include a swollen stomach, persistent vomiting and vomiting blood, bleeding gums and breathing difficulties.

Hundreds of thousands of youngsters in the Philippines, from ages nine and up, received a dose past year and Department of Health (DOH) spokesman Eric Tayag said the country is preparing for the "worst-case scenario", Sky News said.

But for those not previously infected by the virus, more cases of severe disease could occur in the long term following vaccination upon a subsequent dengue infection, Sanofi said.

Malacañang also assured the parents of the students who have been administered with the vaccine that there has been no case of severe dengue infection recorded by the DOH.

"The Department of Health (DOH) is now working in close coordination with the Department of Education (DepEd) to monitor the thousands of students who have been administered with Dengvaxia", he added.

Senator JV Ejercito, chairman of the Senate's committee on health, told reporters he wanted to know as well if there was any irregularity in the procurement of the vaccine.

"Until now, no one is using the Dengvaxia in the country", he said in a statement here on Saturday.
