Here’s why, China keeps a mum about vaccines exported to India


A company named- Changchun Changsheng Biotechnology Corporation last week exported it’s vaccine in India, which has now became a scandel, a media from New Delhi reported this last week.

China exported these vaccines to India and by doing this they violated the immunity standards and forged documents which will definitely put China into trouble soon.The government, however, has declined to share details about the recall protocol that’s been initiated.


A government Official in New Delhi said “We have ordered an immediate withdrawal of rabies vaccines manufactured by a Chinese firm for the time being till the investigation is completed. As per our inputs, China’s drug controller has issued an order to stop its manufacturing.”

Chinese government still hasn’t confirmed or even shared details regrading this till now with any country whom they sent the vaccines.

“Changchun Changsheng has started recalling the export vaccines since July 16. The China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) will continue to supervise the recall work,” the ministry said in its written statement.

It didn’t share details about the quantity of vaccines exported to India or the period when was the firm sent them to India.

“According to the news released by CFDA, the State Council (China’s cabinet) investigation team is conducting investigations into the case of Changchun Changsheng illegal production of rabies vaccines. The CFDA has maintained communication with the World Health Organisation’s representative office in China,” the statement said.

Changchun Changsheng, based in northeastern Jilin province, violated national regulations while producing rabies vaccines since April 2014, the state media reported.

“A recall protocol has already been initiated, including notifying other countries and regions about the incident and recalling the vaccines sold there, according to the inspection team sent by the State Council,” the official Xinhua news agency reported on Tuesday.

Details of fake DPT vaccines sold by the company emerged last November during investigations into the rabies vaccine, indicating the matter was hushed up. The state media’s latest reports on the scandal have focused entirely on the anti-rabies vaccine, and the case of the DPT vaccines has found no mention.
