Basically it is completely valid vaccination against influenza, but the medical endeavor to protect the population has failed because the politicians who implemented it, because in all this optional runs a story about money and mistrust. Who took the money and people buy them something that is not good? World Health Organization is trying to create a way to manage pandemic in the world. It is gigantic undertaking, but "break their teeth" in the world on the "political side of pork flu" - explains the expert.
