Oct 18, 2010 9:48:40 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The recommencement of the Rubella vaccination programme by the the Epidemiology Unit of the Health Ministry, which was to commence on October 1, has been delayed.

Health Ministry sources have been quoted in the media saying that while all the vaccines needed for the programme had already been distributed to the relevant locations island wide, the required advice and guidelines have not yet been sent.

The Rubella vaccination programme was suspended from the National Immunization Programme following two deaths of school girls in Matara and Wariyapola, who died due to complications from the vaccination.
