'Arsenic tuberculosis vaccine' I found three months ago ... Procrastination

There is a controversy over the detection of toxic material arsenic in the BCG vaccine against tuberculosis vaccine, which is supposed to be delivered within 4 weeks of birth. It is not the amount that will be a problem, but the related companies have found out about 3 months ago that they already knew it, and they bought the consent of their parents.

There is a controversy over the detection of toxic material arsenic in the BCG vaccine against tuberculosis vaccine, which is supposed to be delivered within 4 weeks of birth. It is not the amount that will be a problem, but the related companies have found out about 3 months ago that they already knew it, and they bought the consent of their parents.

The BCG vaccination against arsenic detected in BC is a 'transdermal product' that does not 'blood', which is inoculated with a needle of a needle, but presses like a stamp.

It is one of the imported products from Japan used in Korea, and about 140,000 have been distributed in the market.

Health officials and experts explain that the level of arsenic detected is one-eighth of the daily allowable level, which is not a health hazard.

However, as the drug maker stops shipment of the vaccine and recalls it, parents who have inoculated the child with the vaccine are anxious.

In Japan, the health authorities proclaimed publicly after three months' notice of the manufacturer's report.

However, Korea also detected that the import company, Korea Vaccine, had a problem with this product at the end of August.

[Korea Vaccine (Importer) Person in charge: We know that the amount of our daily intake is much higher than that of our product.]

The veterinarian said that the vaccine will be swiftly and accurately screened for infants and babies in the future.
