Vaccination can strategically support the protection of poultry against highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI)

Group of international scientist review options of surveillance-flanked HPAI vaccination
The highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (HPAIV) of the subtype H5 has progressed from sporadic seasonal occurrences to a continuous and nearly global panzootic in wild birds. This raises HPAIV incursion pressure into poultry holdings, as well as the risks of secondary spread and human exposure at the poultry-human interface. A group of international scientists outlines how vaccination with zero-tolerance for infection can be achieved by usefully supplementing multiple layers of appropriate surveillance.
