Dutch find no link between infant deaths and vaccine
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Dutch health authority RIVM said on Tuesday the deaths of three infants last year were not related to a vaccine produced by U.S. pharmaceutical company Wyeth, now part of Pfizer.
"Careful research showed there is no relation between the vaccine and the deaths," the health authority said in a statement on its website.
In November, the RIVM said they had banned use of a batch of Pfizer's Prevenar, or Prevnar, after three infants died within two weeks of receiving the anti-infection vaccination.
