Vaccination

Equine Influenza

Primary Course : -

The primary course of vaccinations for Equine Influenza consists of
3 vaccinations.
The first vaccination followed by a second 4 – 6 weeks later and a third    5 – 7 months after that.  (International regulations state 21 – 92 days then 150 – 215 days).
 
Boosters :-
Vaccinations for Equine Influenza should receive a booster within a 365 day period. 
However horses competing at international level (SJAI, FEI etc) are now required to have a valid primary course and up to date booster vaccinations including a booster within the previous 6 months.


Tetanus

Tetanus cover is usually given along with the Influenza but can be achieved separately after 2 vaccinations 4-6 weeks apart, a booster one year later and then boosters every other year for the lifetime of the horse.
Please note that the date on which a vaccination is given will be recorded in passports or vaccination cards.  Any failure to arrange vaccinations within the required period is the owner’s responsibility and may mean that the primary course of vaccination needs to be repeated to allow the horse concerned to compete in certain competitions.
