Vaccines are a safe and easy way to stimulate an animal’s natural defence system to prevent disease, safeguard their health and protect their welfare.
Vaccines also protect livestock against infectious diseases, ensuring the provision of safe and nutritious food such as eggs, milk, fish and meat products.
They are safe and efficient.
Vaccines improve an individual’s immunity to a disease without them experiencing typical symptoms. In some diseases, natural infection provides no immunity. Vaccination mimics infection by stimulating the bodies immune system with an organism that is either weakened or dead
For farm animals, good husbandry and efficient bio-security measures are important factors in the prevention of diseases. Even when following these practices, animals can still become ill and highly infectious diseases can spread rapidly with devastating results. And so, vaccination is an important part of herd health plans, to stimulate animals’ natural immunity.
