That's no argument against vaccination in general.

Deaths of children are of course always tragic, but I wouldn't call three cases linked to the vaccine "a lot", if you refer to reports like these:

http://www.dw.com/en/philippines-dengue-vaccine-may-be-linked-to-3-deaths/a-42444299
The bigger impact this whole story had is that people are discouraged and vaccination rates are dropping, not only for dengue but also for other diseases, which in the end may cause much more deaths.
The big question is why Sanofi didn't notice the adverse effects on the serum-negative subgroups in their trials earlier, I'm sure that is being investigated.
