The 35 students who experienced anaphylactic shock after being vaccinated in a secondary school in southern Hau Giang Province are now in stable condition, according to the provincial Preventive Health Centre.

On Monday, 35 students at Vinh Vien A Secondary School experienced difficulty breathing, headache, vomiting and fever after getting the measles-rubella vaccination. Ten were in serious condition and taken to the provincial general hospital.

Doctors said these students were possibly in anaphylactic shock. The rest of the vaccines were revoked for testing.

Head of the centre Nguyen Van Muoi said all the students would be discharged from the hospital and resume their studies soon.

Under the measles and rubella vaccination campaign launched by the provincial health sector, children between 1 and 14 years old are being vaccinated from October to the end of this month.
