Pakistan Suspends Health Officials For Wasting $3.7m Worth Of Vaccines

Pakistani authorities have suspended two health officials after $3.7 million worth of vaccines donated by UNICEF to protect children from deadly diseases were wasted.

The pentavalent vaccines, which protect against five diseases with a single shot, spoiled because they were not stored at the proper temperature.

“An inquiry commission was formed to investigate the case and has suspended two officials for negligence,” Dr Saqlain Ahmad Gilani, the national manager at the Expanded Programme on Immunisation told AFP. The vaccines were stored on a higher temperature than required, he explained.
