Damascus, SANA- About 6,000 doses of vaccines for children coming from Turkey entered areas in the northwestern countryside of Aleppo where terrorist organizations are active during the past few days.
Local sources told SANA reporter that the locals refused to give vaccines to their children for fear of them being corrupt or inconsistent with health conditions in terms of quality, expiry date, reliability, the producing company and the way they are saved and transferred.
On September 16 2014, fake health establishments linked to terrorist organizations in cooperation with the Turkish authorities vaccinated children in the eastern areas of Maaret al-Nouman in Idleb countryside with corrupt, polluted and poisoned vaccines for measles, killing 15 children who died immediately after being vaccinated while scores others suffered from suffocation.
In a relevant context, the Ministry of Health called on locals in the areas near the joint border with Turkey not to deal with any medicines or vaccines which enter their areas by the Turkish authorities, asserting that the ministry will spare no effort in providing locals with medical needs especially vaccines for children through all available means in cooperation with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent and other international organizations concerned with health affairs in the Syrian territories.
The ministry said that it takes into account the fact that giving the vaccines to children requires strict standards, technical conditions, skills and expertise by specialized medical staffs.
