    While I can't comment on the audio, I do know that PT BioFarma & Airlangga University announced a joint project to produce a Pre-Pandemic H5N1 vaccine nearly a year ago

    A blow up of the video shows the manufacturer of these vials to be BioFarma, and so I suspect these are early samples.


    It seems unlikely that they would be a direct match to the recently arrived clade 2.3.2 , since clade 2.1 has predominated in that nation for years. But I've been unable to find any specs on the strain used.

    RI to produce bird-flu vaccine by 2013

    Indonesia is aiming to manufacture its first, locally produced vaccine to combat the H5N1 avian influenza virus by 2013, with state-owned pharmaceutical company PT Biofarma working to prepare its facilities for developing the vaccine for mass production, a minister says.

    Health Minister Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih said that Biofarma was currently working on an initial stage of the vaccine, a process that could lead the way for its mass production in 2013

    Indonesia begins H5N1 vaccine production

    Indonesia's health minister said the country has started producing its own supply of vaccine against the H5N1 virus, Bernama, Malaysia's national news agency, reported today. Nafsiah Mboi told Xinhua, China's national news agency, that so far several thousand vaccine doses have been produced, with more than 50,000 needed for stockpiling in the event of an H5N1 pandemic in Indonesia or to assist other countries where outbreaks are occurring. She said the vaccine is being produced in Bandung, the capital of West Java province. Indonesia leads the world with the highest number of confirmed human H5N1 infections and deaths—189 cases, of which 157 were fatal. In a 2007 protest against developing countries' poor access to drugs and vaccines against H5N1, it temporarily stopped sharing virus samples. Since then, global health officials and the countries themselves have developed plans for the countries to start producing their own vaccine, and in 2011 the World Health Assembly approved a working group's final virus-sharing agreement that improved the flow of the countermeasures to poorer countries.

      This thread from 2011 indicates that the UNAIR seed strain was from an individual who died in 2005 (possibly from A/Indonesia/5/2005(H5N1)).
