12 Babies Die During Vaccine Trials in Argentina
At least 12 infants who were part of a clinical study to test a pneumonia vaccine have died in Argentina over the course of the past year.
The study was sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline, and uses children from poor families. According to the Argentine Federation of Health Professionals, the families are “pressured and forced into signing consent forms”.
The vaccine trial is still ongoing despite the denunciations.
