Yemen has announced that it has received H1N1 vaccine from the World Health Organization.
The announcement was made in the opening of a training course for a number of pilgrimage agencies in the country that was organized by the Hajji and Umra Department at the Ministry of Endowments and Guidance.
Earlier, the WHO said the pandemic of swine flu will vanish when a large number of the people are vaccinated. It also said that it would distribute the H1N1 vaccine for more than 100 developing states in November.
The organization says the flu is mild after it raised in June the alert about it to phase six.
There are about 1616 confirmed cases of swine flu in Yemen, with 16 deaths reported from the pandemic.
On the other hand, Deputy President of the World Bank for the MENA region is to pay a visit to Yemen on November 11 to discuss the WB aid for the country to combat the swine flu.
