The Russian company to supply hepatitis A vaccine to Turkmenistan

Naukagrad-press reports that the Russian company ZAO Vektor-BiAlgam signed a three year deal with Turkmenistan to supply hepatitis A vaccine.

Vector-BiAlgam is one of the leading Russian companies manufacturing pharmaceutical immune-biological products. The website reports that this is the only manufacturer of hepatitis A vaccine in Russia.

Let us recall that in November 2016 Chronicles of Turkmenistan reported about the outbreak of hepatitis A in Turkmenistan's schools. As was reported, 5 to 7 students in each class had been diagnosed with hepatitis A at that time.
