Strangvac, a vaccine against equine strangles, is now available for sale in the UK

Intervacc AB (publ) announces today that Strangvac is now available for sale in the UK.

This week Strangvac has been launched in the UK and horse owners can now vaccinate their horses against the infectious equine disease Strangles. Dechra will be distributing the vaccine in the UK and in a number of European countries.

“Strangles is highly contagious and is one of the most common equine infectious diseases with an estimated 600 outbreaks each year in the UK alone. Feared by many horse owners due to the potential severity of the clinical signs and the speed at which it can spread through an affected farm, we are sure the new strangles vaccine will be a vital tool and a huge benefit to the equestrian industry as a whole” says Sara Barker, equine field support manager at Dechra Pharmaceuticals PLC.

“Strangvac is approved for sale and marketing in the EU as well as the UK, Norway and Iceland, and has been launched in Sweden, Denmark and now also in the UK. The UK is expected to be one of the largest markets in Europe for a vaccine against this highly contagious infectious disease of horses” comments Andreas Andersson, CEO of Intervacc.
