2010 poultry vaccination plan to launch soon

Poultry nationwide will be vaccinated to prevent against bird flu

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development January 9 announced a vaccination plan for poultry across the country.

Under the plan, all provinces nationwide must strictly abide by vaccine regulations to prevent disease like bird flu from spreading.

Local governments will carry out two rounds of vaccinations; the first in April and May; and the second in October and November.

Thirty-two provinces including 13 northern provinces, five provinces in the southeast southern region, and 13 Mekong delta provinces will vaccinate birds.

Other provinces are not required to hold mass vaccinations except in high-risk areas.
