UC Davis Report Answers Equine Vaccine Questions

Spring is vaccination season, and a free report published recently by the University of California Davis Center for Equine Health addresses commonly asked questions about the subject.

Called The Horse Report, the Spring 2021 issue of the online publication address questions such as:

  • What is a standard vaccination program for horses?
  • Does my horse have to be vaccinated every year? What happens if my horse misses a year?
  • Can I “check for titers” to determine if my horse needs to be vaccinated?
  • Is it OK to change vaccine manufacturers?

It also features information on West Nile virus and “10 Things You Might Not Know About Equine Vaccines.”
