Doctors’ Group Tells Public Attorney’s Office To Stop Spreading False And Unproven Claims Against Controversial Dengvaxia Vaccine

DENGVAXIA – The Doctors for Truth and Welfare calls out on the Public Attorney’s Office and tells them to stop spreading unproven Dengvaxia claims.

The one-year ban on Dengvaxia vaccine will end this month but according to the Department of Health, the vaccine will not be used anytime soon, thus, extending the ban. The Certificate Product Registration (CPR) of the controversial vaccine, according to DOH Undersecretary Eric Domingo, has not yet lifted and believes that it will no longer be lifted anymore.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said that pending regulatory and legal issues and the lack of testing kits to detect previous dengue infection are among the reasons to stop the anti-dengue vaccine, even noting that no one will dare to let themselves be vaccinated with it.

According to Philstar, slamming directly to PAO chief Persida Acosta and forensics chief Erwin Erfe, the group calls for a halt to the continuous spread of unproven claims of deaths caused by the dengue vaccine by the “same unqualified but noisy people” who are largely responsible for the fall in vaccine confidence in the country

The group was forced to make a statement after they were confident that the safety of vaccines drop from 93% to 32%.Meanwhile, cases of measles rose by 350% and rubella by over 1000%.

Lastly, based on the report, the group noted that children are needlessly suffering and dying because of the fear mongering and misinformation that has been allowed to propagate in little over a year. they further added that they are move towards epidemics of epic proportion of otherwise preventable diseases.
