Vietnam to cull all unvaccinated birds

12-07-2007 | |

Vietnamese state agencies have been asked by the government to close all fowl hatcheries that do not meet specific veterinary hygiene safety standards.

The Vietnamese government has also made a requirement that all flocks of ducks which have yet to be vaccinated against bird flu viruses must be culled, as well as to coordinate intensified bird flu vaccination among poultry nationwide.
Since May, avian influenza outbreaks among fowls have been reported in 18 cities and provinces across Vietnam.
