Changes to Vaccination Rules
26 January 2006

BHDTA Council have agreed, at the request of many members, to change the Equine Influenza vaccination rules back to a single 12 monthly vaccination for Club and National events.

The 6 monthly requirement remains in place for all international events, as this is an FEI rule.

BHDTA Rule book change:

Article 912, section  1.3:

Delete ?in accordance with the prevailing international rules? and insert ?for equine influenza, including booster injections at 12 monthly intervals?.
