Dutch likely to stop vaccinating for AD
It is likely that the Dutch will stop the preventive
vaccinating pigs for Aujeszky's Disease (AD).
Provided that several authorities agree with
proposals, the ban against Aujeszky's Disease
vaccinations will take
effect on January 1st, 2007.
The basis of the proposals is that necessary cullings have to be prevented
and outbreaks are only fought with the principles of vaccination and
This summer already, the Dutch board for Livestock and Meat (PVV), showed a
preference to stop preventive vaccinating. Further talks with the Dutch ministry
for agriculture, nature and food quality have to be conducted to agree on how to
maintain the new regulations.
Hopefully by the end of December, it can be certain that the current
vaccination obligation will turn into a vaccination ban.
