Vaccinations Unlikely At Warwick Farm

Tuesday, 25th September 2007

And NSW Department Of Primary Industries chief vet Bruce Christie said it was "unlikely an initial vaccination program would include thoroughbreds stabled at Warwick Farm". Christie explained: "The experience from other locations, and we are certainly keeping an open mind on this, is that once this virus is in it rips through stables very quickly." He said the timeframe for the vaccination to take hold meant it would not be practical to vaccinate the Warwick Farm horse population, noting: "By the time this vaccination actually kicks in, most of the Warwick Farm horses, I would expect, would be infected."
