Concerns for Samoa's vaccination programme

From , 5:03 am on 12 July 2018

A New Zealand intensive care specialist is concerned the death of two babies in Samoa will be a setback to vaccination programmes in the country.

The infants died last Friday after receiving the MMR vaccination for measles, mumps and rubella.

Middlemore Hospital's intensive care specialist David Galler, who spent 2015 as a volunteer in Apia's main hospital, spoke with Giles Beckford about the potential for New Zealand help.
