More than 730,000 children, ages 9 and up, received one dose of the Dengvaxia vaccine a year ago.

The assurance was made after French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi Pasteur, manufacturer of the dengue vaccine called Dengvaxia, revealed that it could worsen the effects of the disease on those who have not been exposed to the dengue virus.
