“Vaccination of birds began on March 10, and it is going on at present in Moscow and in 69 regions. A total of 863,000 birds have been vaccinated against the dangerous virus over that past 24 hours alone,” an information department official of the Emergency Situations Ministry told Itar-Tass on Friday. Bird flu outbreaks have been registered this year in ten regions of Russia -- Dagestan, the Stavropol and Krasnodar territories, Adygeya, Chechnya, Kabardino-Balkaria, Kalmykia, Astrakhan, Rostov and Volgograd regions. Infection killed 1.1 million birds, and more than 200,000 were destroyed. At present, bird flu has been registered in the village of Kolobrodovo in the Volgograd region. The diagnosis of bird flu that has caused loss of earlier vaccinated poultry in Kolobrodovo has been confirmed by laboratory studies. In the opinion of veterinary physicians, vaccinated poultry was short of time to develop immunity, a process taking 28 days. Other specialists believe that the hens could contract infection before vaccination. The ministry’s official stressed that “not a single case of this virus disease has been registered among people”.
