Chinese vaccination firm fined $1.3bn for illegal production of rabies vaccine


 

A Chinese vaccination firm has been fined $1.3bn (£988m) after it was found to have illegally produced the human rabies vaccine.

 
Changchun Changsheng had blended different batches of vaccine fluid and used expired fluid to produce some of the batches, according to state news agency Xinhua.


The company also falsified production data for the vaccine.


This is not the first major vaccine scandal to hit China.


Changchun Changsheng's pharmaceutical production licence has also been revoked and its illegally produced vaccines have been confiscated.
