Today (22nd), medical reporter Cho Dong-chan, a specialist, is also appearing.
Q. Influenza vaccination, is there a disagreement among experts?
[Cho Dong-chan/medical reporter (specialist): In the event of a vaccine-related death accident, it is necessary to investigate from the production and distribution process to the moment of injection at the hospital, and other people who received the injection through the same route.
The health authorities did it all, but the problem was not revealed.
They even say that they are worried about what to do more, but that is why the health authorities and the Korean Vaccination Society say that the flu vaccination should continue.
Nevertheless, I think people are anxious to look into the whole process of re big enough vaccine will be, for wo pray Medical Association has retained Let reasons for the week.]
Q. But today, Minister 560 minutes a day among the elderly over 70 years old About death, half of them get flu vaccine, I said this, but after all, you don't have to worry too much, you mean, right?
[Cho Dong-chan / Medical reporter (specialist): If the daily temperature difference increases, the number of deaths in the elderly population increases.
There was also a case in Japan in the late 90s that was misunderstood as the number of deaths after flu vaccination when this period and the vaccination period for the elderly influenza overlap.
It was concluded after a thorough investigation at the time, and we are currently conducting an investigation.
Excessive anxiety is also a problem, but it also seems to be wary to conclude that it is safe.]
Q. In order for people's worries or anxiety to disappear, this is not because of the vaccine, this would have to be clarified. What more needs to be confirmed?
[Dong-Chan Jo / Medical reporter (specialist): It was confirmed through an autopsy that the cause of death of a 17-year-old male student was not due to a side effect of the vaccine.
I think the cause of the people who died after the flu vaccination must be accurately identified through an autopsy to determine whether to stop the vaccine or to get it safely.I hope this process will take about two weeks, but I hope the health officials hurry this up.
Stopping the flu vaccination is also because of the heavy damage.]
Q. In Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul, I sent a message to withhold the vaccination, but it is different from the official position of the Agency for Disease Control and Prevention.
[Cho Dong-chan/medical journalist (specialist): The level of social distancing can also be determined by the local government.
This time, Yeongdeungpo-gu's decision is also on that level, but if opinions differ with the central government, the people may be a little confused, so I hope that such a part will be coordinated.]
