The death of the five-month-old baby girl was not related to the vaccination as the autopsy results indicated that the baby died of natural causes. She was presented as dead on arrival at the clinic. She was not vaccinated on that particular day. The second baby, the 14-week-old baby boy, was presented to the clinic to receive his scheduled vaccines on the day and later brought back to the Manenburg Clinic, not breathing. Autopsy results are not yet available. The two incidents are not related. It was unfortunate and coincidental that the two babies presented on the same day.
