August 15 Flu Update

FAO is consulting with Vietnam and recommends that the country change its poultry vaccination schedule. Vaccination has been widely employed in Vietnam, to mixed results.

FAO is also recommending that Vietnam have private-public cost sharing on vaccination programs. Wonder how that will work with small farmers?

Do skyrocketing poultry imports into China indicate more knowledge than they say they have about avian flu outbreaks?

This story is similar, about avian influenza and the food supply in Africa.

Japan has donated Tamiflu to Vietnam.
