HPA Equine Influenza Update

RCVS has advised vets to administer vaccinations

On Friday 17 April, the Hurlingham Polo Association, announced an update on Equine Influenza vaccinations, with full details to be posted on their website in due course: 

“Vets have now been advised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons that they can administer vaccinations to maintain the health status of animals. Covid-19 regulations on social distancing are still relevant and your vet will make a risk assessment prior to the visit to limit everyone’s risk. This procedure is best discussed with your own vet. Horses that were vaccinated last year in March and April have until the end of April this year to receive their yearly booster. Next year all annual boosters must be given within 365 days of the last vaccination. When playing or umpiring, the last vaccination must have been given within 6 months and 21 days. Horses not correctly vaccinated will need a course of three vaccines – the second 21-92 days after the first and the third 150-215 days after the second. Horses can play 7 days after the second vaccine.”
