BLUETONGUE UPDATE

DEFRA update:

“We are writing to let you know that the amendment regulations for BTV were laid before Parliament on 30 July, and providing nobody disputes them, will come into force on Friday 24 August.  The regulations, following a risk assessment and the issuing of a general licence, allow the use of licensed inactivated vaccines for all current serotypes in disease free areas.  In due course these will be published by The Stationery Office at www.tsoshop.co.uk ”
