The Chair of ANRPB Greg Kakoschke emailed the SAHPA that Dr Mark
White has advised of his intention to commence commercial
manufacturing of the vaccine this week following 3 successful test
batch trials.

Dr White has also advised that he will honour his commitment to
supply ANRPB Disease Management Fund donors first. This will include
a small number of individuals, plus clubs and associations.

What we do not know yet is exactly when the vaccine will become
available as we are still awaiting APVMA approval.

Another “unknown” is whether Dr White will be able to supply
directly to clubs and associations or whether the APVMA will
stipulate Veterinarian only supply. On that note I recall you having
mentioned the possibility of knowing a SA vet who may be able to
assist SAHPA members.

The ANRPB has some work to do to supply Dr Mark White with the number
of doses of the vaccine that each donor club and association require.
The ANRPB would appreciate SAHPA guidance in determining how many
doses of the vaccine will be required by SAHPA members.

Could each Club Secretary please survey their members and advise the
SAHPA General Secretary the number of members who will purchase the
vaccine this Thursday night 4th October.

We appreciate it is difficult to commit not knowing the price yet but
would appreciate members to indicate whether the will purchase the
vaccine.
