In January 2016 Professor Kurt Krause commented on New Zealand's preparation for pandemic influenza by the Ministry of Health tendering for 300,000 doses of vaccine for H5N1, one prominent strain of bird flu. He acknowledged that it is fair to be concerned about whether the correct strain was chosen because no-one knows for sure which bird flu strain, if any, will cause widespread human infection. However the H5N1 vaccine is probably the best bet we have right now. Another big issue was how quickly countries could get hold of enough vaccinations for an entire population during a pandemic.
