Vaccination of domestic birds against bird flu has been launched on Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula
Vaccination of domestic birds against bird flu has been launched on Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula, the chief veterinary doctor of the region told Tass on Tuesday. According to Vitaly Sapunov, the region has received over 43,000 dozes of vaccine against the dangerous virus. First of all, over 22,000 birds from private households and local farms will be vaccinated. The vaccination of the biggest on the peninsula poultry factory Pionerskaya, where over 205,000 chickens are held, is not envisaged as it is a restricted-access factory, Sapunov said. No decision has been made concerning a ban on hunting migratory birds in the spring season as a preventive measure. Every year starting from the end of April up to ten million migratory birds arrive in the region. Part of them nest on the peninsula, while others head north after a stopover. Some birds arrive in the region from areas where bird flu cases have been registered. However, no bird flu cases have been fixed in the region as of yet.
