Foot and Mouth Vaccinations Reported as Great Success

22 April 2013

BOLIVIA – National vaccination Foot and Mouth targets have been smashed with figures in some provinces reported as being 123 per cent.

This figure was for the Padcaya municipality, the area with the highest number of vaccinations. Consequently, provincial animal health committees have been pleased to announce a total of 95,660 cattle vaccinated.

San Lorenzo came in second place with 97 per cent vaccination. Further good news came from Cercado and Uriondo.

Contributing to the success of the campaign was the level of coordination between municipalities, local councils and farmers who all cooperated with veterinary services to administer vaccines.
