(SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST) — More than 100 children in eastern China have been given expired polio vaccines by a local health centre, according to mainland media, just months after a public health scare over faulty products.

A total of 145 infants and toddlers in Jinhu county, coastal Jiangsu province received the oral vaccines that were past their expiry date of December 11, news website Thepaper.cn reported.

The case came to light on Monday, when a hospital worker discovered the vaccine about to be given to their child was nearly a month out of date.
