RIYADH (AFP) - Saudi Arabia said Monday it is to vaccinate all its residents performing the Haj against swine flu, pressing ahead with plans to host millions of the worlds Muslims despite a heightened pandemic alert. The kingdom has received the first tranche of 11 million vaccine doses it has ordered for the A(H1N1) flu. Authorities were to begin vaccinating hundreds of thousands of health and other Haj workers as well as domestic faithful against swine flu from next week, said a senior Saudi health official. Anyone working on Haj was being strongly urged to get vaccinated, said Dr Ziad Memish, the assistant deputy health minister for preventive medicine. The priority is for local faithful, he told AFP, referring to the estimated one-million plus Saudis and residents of the country who will embark on the Haj. The vaccines will also be made available but not mandatory for health workers, hundreds of thousands of government and private sector workers dealing with the Haj, and residents of the holy cities of Makkah and Medina, he said. Swine flu deaths have reached 62 in the kingdom, most of them involving people with other health problems, Memish said. Despite concerns about the disease the Haj will go ahead without any forced restrictions on pilgrims, tens of thousands of whom have already arrived in the country for the event. Dr Shahul Ebrahim, an epidemiologist with the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention who is assisting the Saudi health ministry during the Haj, said that close monitoring of pilgrims and the widespread use of face masks and hand cleaners should be able to stall the diseases spread. These are the only things feasible that we can do, he told AFP. I dont see anything that the Saudi government is not doing that should be done, he said. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia warned on Monday that it would not tolerate disturbances during the Haj later this month, after senior officials told Tehran not to politicise the Haj. In a statement after its weekly meeting, the cabinet said the kingdom does not permit any party to disrupt the security of the pilgrims or to attempt to divide the ranks of Muslims, the official SPA news agency reported. The cabinet called on the hundreds of thousands of faithful who have already begun to gather in the holy cities of Makkah and Medina to do nothing to interfere with the successful progress of Haj rites. The statement did not mention Iran, but it came one week after Saudi Haj Minister Fuad al-Farsi said Iran should not take advantage of the pilgrimage for political purposes and its own agenda. Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad and supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei have both alleged that predominantly Saudi Arabia might abuse mainly Shias during the Haj, which peaks on November 25-29.
