star this property answer text <p>Provisional figures for 2017 show 327 badgers were vaccinated under licence from Natural England. The number of BCG doses made available for badger vaccination was limited in 2017 due to a global shortage and the need to prioritise supplies for human vaccination. Global BCG vaccine supply is now improving and although complete figures for the number of badgers vaccinated in 2018 are not yet available, provisional data returned to date indicate that the number will be higher than in 2017.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Landowners and private groups across England can apply to Natural England for a licence to vaccinate badgers against TB. Animal &amp; Plant Health Agency (APHA) provides training for those who wish undertake such vaccination and Defra provides financial support for projects within the Edge Area under the Badger Edge Vaccination Scheme (BEVS).</p><p>BEVS, relaunched in 2018 following a global vaccine shortage, provides matched funding and training for groups that want to take part. Three groups were successful with their applications in 2018. On 13 September 2018 we re-opened the scheme and asked for expressions of interest from those wishing to apply to vaccinate from 2019. The application process closes on 25 January 2019.</p><p>A long-standing research programme at APHA to identify an oral vaccine and a palatable bait in which to deliver it is also ongoing. An efficacy study is currently in progress, with results due later this year.</p><p>We are currently considering the report of the TB Strategy review, conducted by a team led by Professor Sir Charles Godfray, the scope of which includes badger vaccination. A Government response to the review will be published later this year.</p><p> </p>

If anyone has concerns about another individual, they can approach the police who can check their records on the PNC. The police may then take the most appropriate action. In addition, there are currently arrangements in place between the police and the RSPCA.</p> more like this
