WHO donates 9 million flu shots to Philippines

MANILA-The World Health Organization (WHO) promised on Thursday to donate 9 million H1N1 flu shots to the Philippines, and assured the country the vaccines were safe.
At least 1.2 million of the vaccine shots will be made available by the end of the year and be distributed to about 400,000 health workers in the Philippines, WHO director-general Margaret Chan told reporters in Manila.
"The vaccine is safe," Chan said, adding the rate of side effects was within the expected range.
But she urged the Philippines to conduct post-vaccination surveillance to determine any potential harmful side effects.
Chan said the WHO has prioritized donating flu vaccines to 10 percent of the population of poor and developing countries from stockpiles from more developed states. The Philippines has about 92 million people...
PS:The vaccine is "SAFE"....?Chan lying to her teeth again.....
As in the days of Noah...
