European Union: emergency consignment of Foot and Mouth Disease vaccine to Algeria and Tunisia

The European Commission is sending, as an emergency response, a total of 1.1 million doses of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) vaccines to the Algerian and Tunisian authorities.

Monday 4 August 2014 (3 years 9 months 17 days ago)

The European Commission is sending, as an emergency response, a total of 1.1 million doses of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) vaccines to the Algerian and Tunisian authorities, in support of the FMD control campaign carried out following the spread of a new strain of the virus.

The vaccine is formulated from the antigen stocks stored in the EU antigen bank. The shipment is due to be delivered within the next two weeks. The vaccine will be used to immunise cattle, sheep and goats.

The European Commission is supporting the eradication programme since this highly contagious viral disease affecting cloven-hoofed animals represents a threat to the EU's FMD free status and in particular to its Mediterranean Member States.
