Mass vac­ci­na­tion for Chi­nese poul­try Egg stamp­ing vote Rus­sia eyes China for ex­ports

The Poultry Bulletin - - CONTENTS -

China is set to shortly con­duct a mass poul­try vac­ci­na­tion pro­gramme in two south­ern prov­inces in a bid to stamp out the vir­u­lent H7N9 strain of avian in­fluenza.

The ini­tia­tive forms part of the agri­cul­ture min­istry’s at­tempts to deal with the virus, which is re­spon­si­ble for al­most 270 deaths since Oc­to­ber 2016.

There have been some con­cerns that while a mass vac­ci­na­tion pro­gramme will re­duce the clin­i­cal dis­ease, it will not pre­vent the virus from cir­cu­lat­ing and can mask its preva­lence.¡
