star this property answer text <p>Defra works on the development of an oral bovine TB vaccine for badgers in partnership with the Irish and French governments, as well as the Devolved Administrations in Wales and Northern Ireland. This is through the form of a joint project board. The study in Ireland, which involved the administering of vaccine directly to anaesthetised badgers, contributed to that partnership work. Work is now being done in preparation for a further study by Defra’s Animal and Plant Health Agency later this year to assess the protection from infection that may be achieved through consumption by badgers of a candidate oral vaccine in bait, the results of which will help determine the extent to which such a vaccine may play a part in national TB programmes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Guidance to Natural England on issuing licences to cull badgers for the purpose of preventing the spread of bovine TB advises that where culling and vaccination are taking place on adjacent land, applicants should take reasonable steps to negotiate an agreed approach to badger control operations along the relevant boundary with that landowner/occupier.</p><p> </p><p>Modelling suggests that over time culling will outperform vaccination alone, and for most farmers, badger culling is likely to be the preferred option. Some farmers and landowners may prefer to use vaccination to reduce the prevalence of TB infection in badgers. Licences to vaccinate badgers will therefore continue to be available.</p><p> </p><p>Defra provides grant support for badger vaccination projects in the Edge Area but this does not preclude farmers and landowners choosing to cull in those areas provided the robust criteria for a culling licence are met. We see a role for both badger culling and badger vaccination as part of a comprehensive and balanced package of measures to tackle TB in cattle.</p>

Following advice from Public Health England on the need to prioritise available stocks for humans, the Government has taken the decision to suspend attempts to source BCG vaccine for the Badger Edge Vaccination Scheme and other private badger vaccination deployment projects in England until the supply situation is resolved. This follows the decision of the Welsh Government to do the same.

star this property answer text <p>Since 2009 Defra has spent £15 million on oral badger vaccine development, using BCG (the attenuated strain of Mycobacterium bovis used worldwide to vaccinate people against TB). The Animal and Plant Health Agency has identified palatable bait and practical field deployment strategies. The immunity conferred by oral vaccination of badgers with BCG tends to be more variable than that resulting from the injectable formulation of the vaccine. Therefore, current studies are focusing on producing a safe, effective and affordable vaccine which provides consistent protection when eaten by badgers.</p> more like this
