(GEN) SCHOOL RECESS IN ANKARA ENDS.

ANKARA, Nov 1, 2009 (TUR) -- The schools in Ankara, which were earlier recessed to prevent spread of H1N1 virus, will be re-opened on Monday.

Ankara Deputy Governor Fahri Aykiri recalled on Sunday that education had been recessed as of October 26 in Ankara as swine flu cases spread among students.

Aykiri told A.A that schools were disinfected against pandemic A H1N1 virus during one week recess, adding that flu cases dropped in students throughout this one week period.

He also said that vaccination against swine flu would begin as of tomorrow, adding that firstly health personnel and prospective hajjis would be vaccinated.

Turkey ordered first shots of swine flu vaccines from Switzerland-based drug company Novartis. First part, 500,000 doses, will be distributed to provinces tomorrow.

Pregnant women in Turkey will get a special form of swine flu vaccine. Turkey will import 1 million doses which do not contain "adjuvant" for pregnant women. Adjuvant-free vaccines will arrive in Turkey in December.

Turkey detected over 1,500 swine flu cases since May and three fatalities reported so far.
