Iran Veterinary Organization Takes on Avian Flu by Importing Vaccine

Domestic Economy Desk

Following last year’s outbreak of the deadly avian flu virus across Iranian chicken farms, which led to the culling of more than 27 million chickens and inflicted losses worth more than half a billion dollars in, Iran Veterinary Organization has taken important steps to help reduce the virus’s destructive effects this year.
In an exclusive interview with Financial Tribune, Director General of IVO’s Health and Management of Poultry Diseases Office Alireza Akbarshahi explained that for containing the deadly virus, the organization has seriously considered using vaccines at the close of last fiscal year (ended March 20, 2018).
“It was decided to undertake the vaccination of the highly acute avian flu in poultry farms across 12 provinces. Vaccination started since the beginning of the Iranian calendar month of Tir (June 22-July 22) in egg production units of Qazvin, Alborz, Tehran and Qom provinces. The process is set to continue later in the provinces of East Azarbijan, Mazandaran, Gilan, Golestan, Markazi, Fars and Khorasan Razavi,” he said.
