"We assure the public that as per the Department of Health (DOH) there is now no reported case of severe dengue infection to the individuals who received one dose of dengue vaccine past year", Roque said in a statement.

A spokesman for the Health Sciences Authority in Singapore on Thursday said it was working with Sanofi Pasteur to "strengthen the package insert" to include the warning of an increased risk of hospitalisation for dengue and clinically severe dengue in vaccinated individuals not previously infected by dengue. CVS on Sunday said it planned to buy Aetna for $69 billion.

The company said in a statement that all data from vaccinated volunteers in the C. diff trial will continue to be analyzed for more information and shared with the scientific community.

"Potentially adding 5 dengue hospitalizations or 2 clinically severe dengue episodes per 1,000 vaccinees", the presentation showed. It helps uphold the most popular provision of the law, which requires insurers charge sick and healthy people the same rates.

More than 733,000 youngsters in the Philippines have been administered Dengvaxia - the world's first anti-dengue vaccine.

"We understand the concern of our people, especially the parents and the relatives of public elementary children residing in Regions 3, 4-A, and NCR, where the dengue vaccination initiative was launched by the previous administration", Roque said.

The insert would also contain advisories on an assessment of prior dengue infection in individuals before vaccination, and that vaccination should not be recommended to individuals who have not been previously infected with dengue.

The immunisation program is in line with the recommendation of the World Health Organization for mass vaccination in highly endemic countries, health officials said on Friday.

Hundreds of thousands of children in the Philippines have been given a dengue vaccine which may worsen the outbreak, officials warned, as they halted the program late last week.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II on Monday ordered the National Bureau of Investigation to look into possible criminal liability in the controversial P3.5-billion dengue vaccine project of the Department of Health.

The public is urged to ensure that products used are registered and have a hologram sticker and labelled with a valid registration number.
