Having said all of that, I think Holland just pulled the Prevnar vaccine from the market because of some recent deaths.
Very interesting to find out that a study on the Prevnar vaccine was stopped in India because a child died--who apparently shouldn't have been allowed in the study because she in all likelihood had a familial heart condition. This child received the third dose of the standard Prevnar vaccine.
I've never heard of anyone here in the US checking to ensure that kids don't have heart conditions before receiving this vaccine.
