Recently a huge debate was started on a Facebook page I follow about the Hendra vaccine. Apparently vets will possibly start refusing visits to horses that aren't vaccinated. Anyway, that's not the point here.
When the vaccination first came out there was a lot of rumors of it being quite dangerous and horses becoming ill, I said that I would down right not get my horse done if it would risk him becoming sick. No (from what I can tell) they've done more tests and the vaccine is safer for the horses.
I still am on the fence about it as the virus has never been near my town and my horses are kept on a property away from bat colonies and excessive tree coverage. They are fairly safe unless another horse comes and brings the virus with it.
My question is, do you guys think all horses should have this vaccine? Should it become mandatory?
