Relevant government departments have begun inves

igations into the source of the vaccines to find out whether they were fake vaccines or smuggled in from overseas.

The HPV 9-valent vaccine, only officially available at Boao Super Hospital in the Boao Lech

eng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone in Hainan since May last year, was developed for women bet

ween the ages of 16 and 26 to deal with diseases like cervical cancer caused by nine types of HPV.

The Boao pilot zone is the first place on the Chinese mainlan

d allowed to import HPV 9-valent vaccines and other drugs without ne

eding central government permission, in line with the nine preferential polices granted to it by the Stat

e in 2013, such as special permissions in importing medical technology, medical equipment and medicine.
