Members are reminded that they must ensure that flu vaccinations are up to date if they wish to enter team events.
The rule book states that:
Each horse must have a valid vaccination certificate, which undeniably relates to that horse, completed, signed and stamped on each line by a veterinary surgeon, who is not the owner of the animal.
The certificate must state that each horse has received two injections for primary vaccination against Equine influenza given no less than 21 days and no more than 92 days apart. Only the first two injections need to have been given before the horse can compete.
In addition a first booster injection must be given no less than 150 days and no more than 215 days after the second injection of the primary vaccination.
Subsequently, booster injections must be given at intervals of not more than one year apart, commencing after the first booster injection.
None of these injections must be given within the preceding 7 days, including the day of competition or entry into the competition stables.
