BD Vaccination Rules

11. Equine Influenza Vaccination
To protect the health of the other competing horses and the biosecurity of the venue,
a valid passport must accompany the horse to all competitions and be produced
on request. Failure to comply is a disciplinary offence and will debar the horse from
competing at the event for which it has been entered. A horse will not be permitted to
compete unless it has a current vaccination against equine influenza which complies with
the following conditions:
• An initial course of two injections for primary vaccination, not less than 21 days
and not more than 92 days apart, are required before being eligible to compete.
• A first booster injection must be given between 150 and 215 days after the
second injection of primary vaccination.
• Subsequent booster injections must be given at regular intervals of not more
than 12 months, commencing after the first booster injection.
• The most recent booster injection must have been given within six calendar
months +21 days prior to the horse competing.
NB see separate note below re amnesty until 30th June 2021 regarding 6 monthly vaccinations
• The full course or booster must have been administered at least seven days
before arriving at the competition.
The vaccination record(s) in the horse’s passport, must be completed, signed and
stamped line by line, by an appropriate veterinary surgeon (who is neither the owner nor
the rider of the horse). For those competing under FEI rules, please refer to FEI rules.
The responsibility to comply with this rule lies with the competitor, who should consult
with their veterinarian.
Horses being found without adequate and up to date vaccinations will not be allowed
to compete and will be barred from competing until such a time that they have been
given their first and second vaccinations. The registration of any horse found in
breach of this rule will be suspended until rectified.

Equine Influenza vaccination amnesty period
In recognition of some veterinary practices offering a reduced service during lockdown, the requirement for horses to have had a booster vaccination within six months and 21 days of a competition will be waived for the remainder of the summer season, up to 30 June 2021.  Please note that the 12-month rule remains in place for all BD registered horses, regardless of whether or not you are competing – it is vitally important that your horse still has its annual vaccination.

We strongly recommend that owners get up to date with the six monthly booster at the earliest opportunity to minimise the risk of equine influenza spreading once horses begin mixing again.  The current situation in Europe, where there has been a major outbreak of EHV-1 resulting in four horses losing their lives, highlights the importance of vaccination and stringent biosecurity practices.
