Now CBC is reporting that the investigating panel has met and concluded that the deaths were not caused by Prevnar.  http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/2011/03/08/japan-vaccine.html

 

I do wish they would give more information.  Such as releasing what they do believe the causes of death were.

well they seem more advanced than us. I don't think the U.S. would have halted anything over 4 deaths. I give lot of credit to Japan in doing the right thing!

Even if the vaccine did not cause the deaths, at least they did not automatically rule it out. I agree, you have to give them credit!
