The Beijing-based China Economic Times reported on March 17 that improperly stored vaccines administered by the Shanxi Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had killed four children and sickened more than 70 others who had been vaccinated between 2006 and 2008.


China's Ministry of Health sent an investigation team to Shanxi from March 19 to April 1. It confirmed on April 6 that three children had fallen ill in connection to vaccines in the northern Shanxi Province, but it denied the vaccines were problematic.
