Date: Dec 8, 2021



As new diseases emerge and existing diseases mutate, producers are facing complex decisions regarding how to make the best decisions for the health of their herds. Recent advances in vaccines offer new opportunities to combat many of the diseases that have been affecting livestock producers. The USDA Center for Veterinary Biologics (CVB) has released guidance allowing for the development and licensure of Prescription Platform Vaccines (RxPP). RxPP vaccines are a new category of vaccine that fills a gap that is not served by other vaccine types. RxPP vaccines are designed to address emerging and rapidly mutating diseases.
