Russians testing their own vaccine

According to a story in The St. Petersburg Times, the Russians are about to test a new avian-flu vaccine. Scientists at St. Petersburg's Scientific Research Flu Institute will use themselves as experimental subjects. If all goes well, the vaccine could be in production by this fall.

Meanwhile, a story in Pravda reports Russian scientists are planning vaccination programs for routine flu and aren't as persuaded as WHO that an H5N1 pandemic is imminent.
