500,000 people vaccinated against A/H1N1 flu in Mexican capital

It's good to know that some countries are still keen in getting people vaccinated:

The whole report via Xinhua:

" MEXICO CITY, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- At least 500,000 residents of Mexico City have got vaccinated against the A/H1N1 flu, the city's health official told media on Wednesday.

The city has launched a vaccination campaign in the main stations of its metro, light railway and its largest markets.

Armando Ahued, head of Mexico's health department, urged the residents to get vaccinated because a series of cold spells were passing over the city raising risks for respiratory illnesses, including the A/H1N1 virus.

The A/H1N1 flu had killed 780 people and infected more than 67,200 others in the country till the end of 2009 since its outbreak in mid-April."
