Doctor Erion Dasho has demanded the suspension of vaccination with the CoronaVac vaccine in Albania.
“Due to at least two unexpected deaths between persons who received the CoronaVac vaccine, one of which I have personally investigated, I recommend the Helath Ministry, the Covid Committee and the Immunization Community to temporarily suspend the vaccination with CoronaVac, until these deaths are investigated and not related to the vaccine in question”, Dasho declared.
“These appeals have no intention to spread panic or damage an efficient process, such as the immunization with COVID-19. It is just an implementation of international practices. Two deaths among 50,000 administered vaccines shows that it requires extraordinary care. I am open to communicate with representatives of the Ministry and the Committee regarding the case that I have investigated personally”, Dasho declared.
