HALLELUJA IT’S HERE
HENDRA VACCINE HAS ARRIVED
THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
We are very fortunate to live in a country where everything is about CHOICE
Each individual is able to choose what they want to do
The first choice many people make is whether or not they are going to own a horse
Once that decision is made, it then opens up a never ending chain of decisions and choice
Individuals make those depending on their circumstances and requirements
This is a decision about LIFE or DEATH
IT IS THAT SIMPLE
YOU can CHOOSE whether to protect yourself and others
YOU can CHOOSE whether to protect your horse
YOU can CHOOSE whether to protect your business and livelihood
Yes, there are many issues revolving around the vaccine. It has been released somewhat prematurely.
Before all the proper trials and requirements for registration and availability on the open market. This has been done for one reason
TO GIVE PEOPLE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROTECT THEMSELVES, OTHER PEOPLE, HORSES, AND THEIR BUSINESS’S AGAINST THE DEVASTATING EFFECTS OF HENDRA DISEAS E.
There is one thing we do know for certain, the vaccine is very effective. There are many things we don’t know about the vaccine at this stage, SO WHAT
The other thing we know for certain is that Hendra Disease is here, has been here for centuries, and the reality is that it is never going to go away.
While ever there is an opportunity for flying foxes and horses to interact, outbreaks of Hendra disease are going to occur.
YOU CAN NOW CHOOSE TO BREAK THAT CYCLE
The Vaccine: The vaccine release has been fast tracked because the perception was that people should have the right to access protection against this deadly disease. Under normal circumstances, a new product or vaccine will take up to 5 – 7 years of testing and trials before there is sufficient data to prove to the Australian Registering authority that the product is safe and effective and consumers can have confidence in the use of the product
In this case, the public have been demanding a vaccine. Enough trials have been done to indicate firstly that the product does in fact produce a very high level of protection. Secondly, the work to date suggests that the vaccine has not been associated with any significant side effects. In this case, the registration authorities have seen fit to release a vaccine under special licensing conditions to give people the opportunity to create protection. DO IT NOW
There are many, many, things that are not known.
The most important unknown is the length of time that the vaccine is effective. This is completely unknown and it is a very vital piece of information because we have to know how often a booster has to be given to maintain adequate protection. The level of protection produced so far suggests there is a reasonable expectation that the first course will be good for 12 months, however it may only be 6 months. So What! These first results should be available early next year.
You have choosen to own a horse
Each and every horse owner has a responsibility and a duty of care to take whatever steps are possible to protect themselves, their families, their horse, and their livelihood if that is in any way related to the horse industry
Not to do so is irresponsible!
