Veterinary advice should be sought on the choice, timing and administration of any vaccine.

*Veterinary surgeons and horse owners should be aware that the current datasheet requirement for the only inactivated EAV vaccine used in Europe presently is for 6 monthly boosters and NOT 12 monthly (annual) boosters as was previously the case for this vaccine. This has been the requirement since April 2005, when the vaccine was granted a full licence by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate. Non-compliance with this booster interval requirement may necessitate investigation of the viral shedding status of stallions by Defra under the Equine Viral Arteritis Order 1995.

Vaccination is recommended as one means of aiding the prevention of disease. The listing of vaccines above is for information purposes only and does not imply endorsement of the products by the HBLB, its Veterinary Advisory Committee or Sub-Committees. The information given is accurate at the time of publication.
