Bird flu vaccine not tested on policemen

The State Chief of Police, László Bene, did not give permission to test the recently developed bird flu vaccine on police officers. The idea was proposed by the general manager of the Central Hospital of the Ministry of Interiors, saying that police officers often serve at places where the chances of contact with the virus are high. László Garamvölgyi, spokesman of the National Police (ORFK) explained to the public that no permit has been issued to allow tests on policemen; however, talks are continuously being held on the issue. The spokesman of the vaccine developer and manufacturer company, Zsolt Németh, told wire agency MTI that "there is a significant interest on behalf of the police to participate in the examinations" (Nv, MH)
