Latest News – Influenza Outbreak


Here is the latest news from Pool House Equine Vets posted yesterday at 16.36pm


The BHS advise is unchanged this morning. 


Flu outbreak update.

All UK race meetings suspended until Wednesday next week.

The BEF advises that other shows are not affected.

As at present there have been no outbreaks in Staffordshire or new outbreaks in Derbyshire since the 7th Jan so we believe that attending local events with local competitors is reasonable safe.

This is a developing situation so always check with the organisers of an event that they have a bio security risk assessment in place.

Advice regarding vaccination is to bring forward annual boosters to no more that six months after the last injection.
