Yesterday (1st), the second and final stage of the vaccination campaign against foot-and-mouth disease began in eight municipalities. Cattle ranchers from Presidente Figueiredo, Barcelos, Carauari, Juruá, Novo Airão, Santa Isabel do Rio Negro, São Gabriel da Cachoeira and the headquarters of Tapauá must vaccinate by April 30 and notify Adaf (Amazonas Agricultural and Forestry Defense Agency) until May 15th.

At the same time, the 41 municipalities involved in the first stage also continue vaccinating until the 30th, so that vaccination will be completed throughout the state by that date.

From then on, the entire Amazon will be considered free of foot-and-mouth disease without vaccination, but the status will only be confirmed if we exceed the target of 95% vaccination coverage, said the CEO of Adaf, José Omena.

Presidente Figueiredo, for example, has a herd of approximately 12 thousand animals, including cattle and buffaloes, being the largest among the eight involved in this stage. In total, the eight municipalities have 18,700 animals.
