Discuss the farm’s biosecurity plan with your veterinary practitioner to determine the best vaccination programme to target diseases that the cattle in the herd may be exposed to. Vaccines are available for common cattle diseases in Ireland. • Ireland has a rigorous process for the registration of vaccines for use by farmers • This ensures the products are safe with minimal risk of adverse reactions. • The list of licensed vaccines changes regularly. For details about vaccines which are available in Ireland please visit the HPRA website. ( Note: Some vaccines, may still licensed in Ireland, but are no longer commercially available e.g. Lactovac, Pastobov. Equally, other vaccines may be available on emergency licence (AR16 licences). See There are also licensed vaccines that are subject to official controls e.g. Bluetongue vaccines. Please contact your local approved supplier who may be able to advise you on the availability of products.
