BEIJING, Nov. 13 (Xinhua) -- Two Chinese people have been reported dead after they received vaccination against the A/H1N1 influenza, Deng Haihua, spokesman of the Ministry of Health said Friday.

Deng did not give any personal details of the two patients.

Autopsy of one of the dead showed the patient died of sudden cardiac death, according to a statement posted on the website of the ministry.

Experts have "basically ruled out the possibility that the patient's sudden death was the result of immediate allergic reactions to the flu vaccines," it said, adding that the experts were till waiting for more lab test results.

Autopsy of another dead person would be conducted on Friday night, the ministry said.
