It’s like someone played with the dates to make the medicine seem good for longer.

This is serious because people trust medicines to be safe. The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control is telling doctors and nurses to be careful and not use this medicine if it seems fake. They say only get medicines from the right places and check if they are real.

If you have this prevenar 13 for adults, The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control says stop using it and take it to them. And if you feel bad about using it, see a doctor right away.

This news is a big worry because people need to trust medicines to be healthy. It’s like someone playing with our health, and that’s not okay.

So, everyone needs to be careful and only use real medicines. If you see something strange, tell the people at The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control so they can stop it from happening more.
