Dr Barry Smyth, President of the Australian Veterinary Association, said that the news on the vaccine will be welcomed by both vets and horse owners.

"It's important that veterinarians and horse owners continue with precautions that reduce the risk of spreading the virus and that they report suspected cases immediately," Dr Smyth said.

AHIC President, Dr Barry Smyth, stated that passage of the Horse Disease Response Levy Bills through the House of Representatives was an important first step to enable the horse industry to become a party to the Emergency Animal Disease Response Agreement (EADRA).
"Through EADRA, the industry is guaranteed the support and financial assistance of government in sharing the burden of fighting future emergency disease outbreaks" Dr Smyth said. "Successful eradication of emergency diseases also eliminates ongoing disease management costs, providing further incentive for the industry to become a party to EADRA".
"The ongoing viability of the horse industry could be compromised by a financially devastating disease outbreak. Involvement in EADRA is like taking out an insurance policy for the industry."
Dr Smyth noted that a necessary step for participating in EADRA was to arrive at a suitable levy mechanism, which will enable the horse industry to contribute to part of the costs of future disease responses. The levy is to be set at zero, which means that no levy will be payable until after an emergency disease response is over. The Agreement specifies that industry will be consulted up front about the amount of any levy.
Legislation regarding a levy was passed by the House of Representatives yesterday, and now has been referred to the Senate Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport Committee for further review and consultation.
Dr. Smyth said, "AHIC is committed to contributing to this review process.
