Since 100 cases of febrile convulsions were being reported in Australia among under-five children due to CSL's influenza vaccine in 2010, Australian parents have certain inhibitions in giving children vaccine for the same.
Addressing the matter, Professor Chris Baggoley, who is working at the post of Chief Medical Officer for Australia, said that there are two other companies as well, which have been providing solution for influenza vaccine.
Parents should have trust on the vaccines, as it is in the interest of their children. In addition, it has been revealed that CSL has presented its investigation report, which it carried out to know the reason of failure of its vaccine.
They have reached at a conclusion that there was some problem in their manufacturing method. A high number of viruses were found in the vaccine and that led to convulsions in children, which further led to brain damage among some.
Dr. Alan Paul, who is medical director in CSL, was of the view that they have got to know about the hitch they had in their vaccine. They will now be cautious while preparing the same vaccine.
Chris said about the CSL's ban as "The findings justify the Government's decision to keep the current ban on the use of Fluvax in young children in place".
