Do we have a vaccine for bird flu?

leave a comment »

According to The Age:

“AUSTRALIAN scientists have successfully tested a vaccine for bird flu, but still do not know how effective it will be against the “inevitable” human pandemic.”

But according to the SMH:

“AUSTRALIA’S highly anticipated bird flu vaccine trial has produced immune protection against the virus in only a small minority of the 400 volunteers who received it, disappointing experts and throwing out estimates of how long it would take to vaccinate citizens in the event of pandemic.”
