  1. It’s a good intiative but collective effort of all related stakeholders groups is very essential for the federal Animal health component Redisse and federal department of Veterinary Services and pest control to mandate NVRI to work on production of local strain of vaccine to prevent Avian Influenza outbreak in this country Nigeria.

    1. Thank you for this useful contribution, it is infact a LIFA position for a long term solution to an AI Vaccination in Nigeria.
