Mongolia is set to receive shipments of the swine flu vaccine in the next few weeks, it has been reported.

The World Health Organization (WHO) flu chief Keiji Fukuda made the announcement today, the Associated Press reports.

Azerbaijan and Afghanistan are also due to receive the vaccine in the near future.

The news provider notes that the WHO has a stockpile of around 180 million swine flu vaccinations, which were donated by countries and drug producers.

Some 32 other developing nations are due to be sent the treatment soon, but the health agency is prioritising countries in the northern hemisphere because they are being hit by swine flu harder than their more southerly counterparts.

Mr Fukuda said that the WHO expects the swine flu virus to continue circulating for the next couple of years and that it would be "premature" to speculate as to whether or not it is in decline.
