Finland will become the world’s first country to start vaccinating humans against bird flu.

The European country plans to offer “preemptive bird flu vaccination” as soon as next week.

Health authorities said they will provide the inoculation to workers with exposure to animals, Reuters reports.

Per Reuters:

The Nordic country has bought vaccines for 10,000 people, each consisting of two injections, as part of a joint EU procurement of up to 40 million doses for 15 nations from manufacturer CSL Seqirus.

The European Commission said Finland would be the first country to roll out the vaccine.

“The vaccine will be offered to those aged 18 or over who are at increased risk of contracting avian influenza due to their work or other circumstances,” the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) said in a statement.

The fearmongering campaign to inoculate ‘high-risk workers’ against bird flu is hitting American airwaves.


From Food Processing:

Finland hasn’t had any humans contract bird flu, but its fur farming operations are considered to run a high risk of transmission to people. Its fur farms last year killed about 485,000 animals to stop the disease from spreading, according to UPI.

Hundreds of millions of birds, primarily chickens, have died or been euthanized after contracting or being exposed to the H5N1 bird flu strain, believed to be spread by wild birds. Previously, the disease was confined to birds, but in the past year other farm animals, especially dairy cows, have contracted it and at least three American farm workers have caught it from their cows.

Australia has coordinated arguably the most dramatic bird culling campaign, with plans to slaughter over one million birds.
