This is in regards to the USEF Vaccination Rule that went into effect on December 1, 2015.  If you do not show at USEF sanctioned events this does not affect you.

The veterinarians at NEVC have put together these programs for vaccination compliance:

  1. Biannual- vaccinate every 6 months:
    1. Spring:  STRFW (Eastern and Western Sleeping Sickness, Tetanus, Rhino, Flu, West Nile), Rabies, Strangles
    2. Fall: Rhino and Flu
    3. Clinic reminders will be made to set your appointments every 6 months.

​* Conflicts with vaccinations and show schedule could happen.  

  1. Triannual- vaccinate every 4 months : *Most horses and all FEI Horses 
    1. Spring: STRFW (Eastern and Western Sleeping Sickness, Tetanus, Rhino, Flu, West Nile), Rabies, Strangles
    2. Summer: Rhino and Flu
    3. Winter:  Rhino and Flu
    4. Clinic reminders will be made to set your appointments every 4 months.     

*This program minimizes conflicts with vaccinations and show schedules.  

Please call our office to discuss your vaccination program for the upcoming year.  If you board your horse at one of the larger boarding barns that we service, your horse will most likely fall into the Triannual Vaccination Program.  You can verify your compliance program with the barn manager or owner.  Your NEVC invoice of vaccinations serves as your proof of vaccination for USEF events. 

The Rule:

GR845 Equine Vaccination Rule 1. At Federation licensed competitions, horses entering the grounds must be accompanied by documentation of Equine Influenza Virus and Equine Herpes Virus (Rhinopneumonitis) vaccinations within six months prior to entering the stables. Horses not in compliance with this rule may be required to leave the competition grounds upon request by Competition Management. Documentation should consist of one of the following methods mentioned below. The frequency of vaccine administration should be per the vaccine manufacturers’ or veterinarian’s recommendations. It is recommended that vaccines are administered by or under the direction of a veterinarian. 2. In the case of vaccines administered by a veterinarian, the exhibitor, upon request by Competition Management, must provide documentation from the veterinarian on documenting that the horse in question received the vaccinations; name of the vaccines and date of vaccine administration. 3. In the case of vaccines administered by a person other than a veterinarian, the exhibitor, upon request by Competition Management, must provide a receipt of the vaccine purchase which is signed by the owner, or agent with care, custody, and control of the horse; name, serial number and expiration date of the vaccine; and date of vaccine administration. 4. In the case of a horse that is unable to receive either of the vaccinations due to a history of adverse reactions, the exhibitor, upon request by Competition Management, must provide a letter from the veterinarian on official letterhead stating that the horse in question cannot be vaccinated due to medical concerns and a log of temperatures taken twice daily for the seven days prior to entering the competition grounds. These horses must also have their temperature taken and logged twice daily while on the competition grounds. The log of temperatures should be provided to the Competition Management, steward, or technical delegate when requested. 5. Competition Management may not amend or enhance vaccination requirements without prior approval of the Veterinary Committee. BOD 1/17/15 Effective 12/1/15
