As many of you have no doubt been aware (and concerned about) there has been a shortage of Duvaxyn EHV1,4 in Australia in the past year. TBA is pleased to announce that the first batch of the vaccine is likely to arrive in August this year, a full 12 months shorter than we were initially told was likely.
The vaccine is now in the final stages of being approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) and its manufacturer, Zoetis, is confident the global demand will be met within the coming months.
TBA has worked very hard putting pressure on the Department of Agriculture, the APVMA and Zoetis so that this vaccine is available as quickly as possible. Hopefully there will be no hold ups with production and you will have access to the vaccine shortly.
