MANAGUA, October 22. /TASS/. New modules producing vaccines for tropical diseases could be launched at a new Russian plant in Nicaragua, Russian Healthcare Minister Veronika Skvortsova told reporters on Saturday.

"We are ready to open new modules at this plant against those diseases that are relevant to this region — the Deghue, Zika and Chikungunya fevers," Skvortsova said.

Russian technology allows to quickly develop required vaccines, she said. "It is a first step to boost many immune-biological aspects that are very important for this region, which represents a natural hotbed for tropical diseases and fevers," Skvortsova said.

The first Russian plant on vaccine production will open in Nicaragua, and production of seasonal flu vaccines will be launched first as all lines are ready.

In 2013, the Russian-Nicaraguan inter-governmental commission agreed to build the bio-medical immune-biological facility. Presidents of the countries supported the decision.
