Flu Vaccinations

All equines at all HVRC shows, events and clinics to have received a flu booster vaccination in the last 12 months.  At shows you will need to bring your horse passport with you to the entries hut when you make your entries so that flu vaccinations can be checked. Re the 7 day rule: you can attend if your booster was within 7 days of the event.  However, you cannot attend if you have started a new course of vaccinations within the last 7 days.  A new course consists of 3 vaccinations –  you can attend  after the second vaccination has been administered. Those going to Somerford Park Farm senior camp will need to have had a booster within 6 months as this is required by Somerford Park Farm.
