Swine flu vaccines coming next month

Some 300,000 doses of the H1N1 influenza vaccine are set to arrive in Cambodia next month, Pieter JM van Maaren, the country head of the World Health Organisation (WHO), said Wednesday. “We are saying sorry that our service is slow, but we expected that it will arrive into Cambodia in February this year,” he said during a press conference at the Ministry of Health. In early December last year, the WHO promised to provide the doses to Cambodia to prevent the virus – commonly known as swine flu – from spreading. As of January 14, six people have died and 553 people have reportedly been infected with the virus.
