Prime minister orders probe into deaths after vaccination

Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun on Friday called for a thorough probe into the deaths of people after being vaccinated against seasonal influenza.

As of midnight Thursday, 30 people have died after inoculation, but health authorities found no direct links between the vaccine and fatalities.

"I offer my deep condolences to the bereaved families," Chung said at a meeting of the Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasure Headquarters.

"The authorities should thoroughly investigate the causal relationship between vaccinations and the deaths, and make public the development transparently."

He noted the public remains nervous despite experts' denial of the connection between the deaths and flu shots.
