Preface

Author(s) : Bernard Vallat

Summary :

Vaccination, when available, is undoubtedly the most cost-effective means of preventing and controlling, and even eradicating, infectious diseases. In recent years vaccination has also been used for other purposes in animal health, production and welfare, e.g. immunocastration. In fact, the impact of vaccination goes far beyond the mere control of infectious diseases. Acting through natural mechanisms, vaccination of animals serves many different purposes, such as controlling animal infections and infestations, thus improving animal health and animal welfare; controlling anthropozoonoses and food poisoning, thereby protecting public health; solving problems associated with antibiotic and anthelmintic resistance; helping to leave food-producing animals free of chemical residues; protecting the environment and biodiversity; and ensuring animal farming sustainability, thereby helping to alleviate poverty.
