ABSTRACT
The article reports on the failure of Defra to gain an extension on the expiry date for bluetongue (BT) vaccine that is already out in the market. The company has not given an extension for the reason that medicine legislation are not allowing extension of expiry dates for the goods after they have been out in the market. According to Nicky Paull, British Veterinary Association (BVA) president, the news was a financial blow to some veterinarians who have left with stock of BT vaccine.
