(ANSA) - Rome, July 2 - Italian authorities have launched
an investigation after a two-month-old baby died following a mandatory
vaccination in a Sicilian hospital.
The baby died on June 29 after having been administered the vaccine in the Maria Paterṇ Arezzo hospital in Ragusa, southern Sicily.
Police have ordered an autopsy following a report by the child's parents, which is due to be carried out on Thursday.
Investigations are "aimed at establishing with certainty the causes of death of the infant, with the goal of shedding light on any responsibility due to medical negligence on the part of employees of the hospital," prosecutors said in a statement.
