DEFRA's own Vaccination Protocol

points out that:

From Defra's consultation letter signed by Roy Hatherway in the Spring of 2003 was asking some of the same questions as are still being asked of the processing and retail stakeholders.

However, as we pointed out in warmwell in the Autumn of 2004

Sept 6 - Sept 12 2004 ~ Defra's Q and A page on vaccination still fails adequately to explain about vaccinated meat for home consumption

Sept 6 - Sept 12 ~ The EU FMD Directive provides for derogation from heat treatments once the Protection or Surveillance Zone has been in place for more than 30 days
