Zulvac 1 is currently awaiting its UK licence.

Fort Dodge was the first company to be appointed by the French authorities to supply a Serotype 1 vaccine and it has been used extensively to combat the major problem posed by this variant of Bluetongue in France.

As no company has yet been licensed to provide a Serotype 1 vaccine in the UK, Fort Dodge has stepped in to support farmers in Jersey who face a serious threat from Bluetongue Serotype 1 because of their proximity to France.
