Q-pan is the approved vaccine for Avian Flu or H5N1.

Is there a vaccine for bird flu?

There is one vaccine that has been produced for avian flu strain H5N1, but it is not available commercially to the public. There is no vaccine for the newest strain of bird flu known to have infected humans, H7N9 identified in late March 2013 in China, that had never before infected humans. It has been confirmed as the strain that killed two men in Shanghai and that is the virus that infected the woman in China currently in critical condition. They did not infect each other or any close contacts.World epidemiologists and vaccine developers are investigating and are in discussions now through the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US.The current incidence of Avian (Bird) Flu (Type A H5N1 Influenza) in humans is very low and it is not easily spread from human to human. However, it is an especially deadly form of flu and so the US Government has ordered a stockpile of this vaccine to have available if a pandemic of this strain of influenza ever does emerge.The information about Bird Flu vaccines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is:On April 17, 2007, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced its approval of the first vaccine to prevent human infection with one strain of the avian influenza (bird flu) H5N1 virus. The vaccine, produced by Sanofi Pasteur, Inc., has been purchased by the federal government for the U.S. Strategic National Stockpile; it will be distributed by public-health officials if needed. This vaccine will not be made commercially available to the general public. Other H5N1 vaccines are being developed by other companies against different H5N1 strains. For more information about the Sanofi Pasteur, Inc. vaccine, see FDA Approves First U.S. Vaccine for Humans Against the Avian Influenza Virus H5N1 [link below]. For information about other H5N1 and pandemic flu vaccine research activities visit Vaccine Research [link below].The H5N1 vaccine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on April 17, 2007, was developed as a safeguard against the possible emergence of an H5N1 pandemic virus. However, the H5N1 virus is not a pandemic virus because it does not transmit efficiently from person to person, so the H5N1 vaccine is being held in stockpiles rather than being used by the general public. This vaccine aids H5N1 preparedness efforts in case an H5N1 pandemic virus were to emerge.

Is there a vaccine or cure or treatment for bird flu?
