"The Ministry of Health will draft a national guideline on vaccination, requiring all doctors to be more careful how they buy and administer vaccines," Deng Haihua, director of the information office of the ministry, said.

However, better co-ordination between health and drug supervision departments should be implemented to ensure safer vaccinations in the future, Deng noted.

In China, supervision of the production and marketing of vaccines is done by the drug supervision department. The health departments are only in charge of managing doctors.

While management remains split between two departments, problems can easily crop up as the vaccine goes from producers to the market and then to patients, Deng said.
