Vaccination Schedule for Goats & Sheep
Suggested Goat & Sheep Vaccination Schedule
Lambs and Kids: Vaccinate for C, D and T (Clostridium perfringens type C & D plus tetanus) by 8 weeks of age, with a booster dose 4 weeks later. If blackleg is prevalent in your area, Covexin 8 can be used instead, to protect against blackleg as well as overeating disease and tetanus. Vaccinate for pasteurella caused by Mannheimia haemolytica at 8-12 weeks of age, with a booster at 12-16 weeks of age. Elective vaccines to consider based on risk of exposure include those protecting against Caseous lymphadenitis, Foot rot and Sore mouth.
Ewes, Rams, Does and Bucks: Vaccinate for the same diseases mentioned above. If previously vaccinated, booster with one dose annually, preferably 2-4 weeks prior to giving birth so that protection is passed through the colostrum to the newborns. In addition, breeding stock may be vaccinated for reproductive diseases caused by Chlamydia and Campylobacter.
