NSW DPI warns against buying EI vaccine on the internet 27 Aug 2007
NSW Dept of Primary Industries

The NSW Department of Primary Industries is warning horse owners to resist the urge to buy equine influenza vaccine from the internet.
The importation of vaccine is illegal as it violates Customs and Quarantine rules and will be confiscated by officials.   It also has the potential to introduce significant diseases into this country.

Chief veterinary officer Bruce Christie says owners will be wasting their money because until such time as the particular strain is identified there is no way of knowing which particular vaccine will work.
