Swine flu vaccine not yet arrived

Up to 300,000 doses of the vaccine against the (A)H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, offered to Cambodia by the World Health Organisation in November have yet to arrive in the Kingdom because the Ministry of Health is still in the process of submitting a formal request, WHO officials said Monday. “We are pushing the ministry to work on this procedure,” said Nima Asgari, a public health specialist from the WHO. Health Minister Mam Bun Heng said: “We haven’t received any news about the vaccine. We are waiting for it.”
