Coonoor (TN): The first consignment of 15 lakh doses of DPT vaccines to cure three infectious diseases in humans -- diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus-- was flagged off from Pasteur Institute of India here. The production of DPT vaccine in the famous Institute was stopped from January 15, 2008, following its failure to comply with the Good Manufacturing Practice. However, the general public and the staff had protested the closure, claiming that then UPA government wanted to shift the facility to Chennai.
