Kazakhstan has suspended immunization against measles after a series of hospitalizations following the injections, Tengrinews reports.
At first, 18 students of a medical college in Temirtau, a town in central Kazakhstan, were hospitalized with high temperature. Then, a similar situation happened in Zhanaozen, where 30 high-school and college students were hospitalized. The condition of the first six was so severe that they were transferred to an intensive care unit. Then, a single case happened in Taraz: a 16-year old student lost consciousness after the immunization and was taken to a psychiatric clinic.
