China claims to have developed two new vaccines that it says are fully capable of stopping the spread of H5N1, giving it enough cover if a pandemic breaks out. Other than claiming to have vaccines, China has never made public how much it has stockpiled nor its plans to immunize birds and humans should a pandemic break out.

What I would like to know if what china says is in fact true which is "China claims to have developed two new vaccines that it says are fully capable of stopping the spread of H5N1", why on earth is is spreading all over the earth at this time?
Maybe it is Chinas way of destroying the rest of the world without the use of weapons??????

Can the virus be spread by wild birds? I have bird feeders for the local chickadees, etc. Should I take them down?

Lets hope a proper vaccine can be found quickley...I did read somewhere yesterday that scientists are sure they can create a vaccine soon!
But experts will not know the make-up of any pandemic strain until it appears, and it can take six months to develop a vaccine against a particular strain. BBC
