Skopje, 27 May 2016 (MIA) – 50,000 shots, donated by the European Union, are being used in the past five days to vaccinate cattle against lumpy skin disease.

Vaccination has been launched in the worst-affected areas in eastern Macedonia, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Economy Mihail Cvetkov said Friday.

In the meantime, the shots procured by Macedonia for EUR 700,000 from a company in South Africa – considered thus far the only manufacturer of the shots in the world – are expected to arrive this week.

“We have been informed there is another company that is also producing these vaccines in addition to the South African company… The required amounts of vaccines are due to arrive and the cattle will be vaccinated. Hopefully, the entire process will be completed as soon as possible,” Cvetkov told reporters attending an event marking Wheat Day 2016 in Skopje. ba/13:46
