China Says Vaccines Didn't Cause 9 Kids' Deaths

Vaccines did not cause the deaths of nine children shortly after they were inoculated for hepatitis in a Chinese government program and no links have been found in eight other cases still being investigated, health officials said Friday after safety concerns arose.

At the same time, China's national product safety watchdog said three drug makers — one of whom was scrutinized over the recent deaths — had suspended production because they failed to meet new manufacturing standards.
