Swine flu stocks are seeing interest today after China became the first country in the world to issue a warrant for mass inoculation with domestic A/H1N1 flu vaccine.

The first people to receive the vaccinations will be those attending celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. The celebration on October 1 consists of a military parade, a mass pageant and a gala. The pageant alone will involve about 200,000 citizens. The protection would also be given to vulnerable groups, such as carriers of chronic disease, school students and medical staff.
