Vaccination is without doubt the single most useful measure available to prevent infectious diseases. The advantages of vaccination are numerous. It is the only available method to prevent, or sometimes cure, viral animal infections in the absence of broad spectrum antivirals. Vaccines are environmentally friendly and increase animal welfare by preventing suffering caused by disease or by the consequent curative treatment. Curative treatment may also result in antibiotic resistance and pharmaceutical residues in food. For the management of livestock health, vaccines are the best tool to achieve sustainability.
