Bird flu H5N1: Why people are being vaccinated in Finland

So far, four people in the USA have been infected with the H5N1 pathogen after contact with infected cows. The EU is also monitoring developments and is starting a precautionary vaccination program in Finland. Why there of all places?

In the USA, a particularly dangerous H5N1 bird flu virus is spreading to dairy cow populations. In a few cases, it has also been transmitted to humans. Such infections have not been observed in our country so far, but cannot be ruled out.
