Joint American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)-Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE)-Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) Statement on the benefits of animal vaccination programs in advancing animal and human health.


AVMA, FVE, and CVMA will continue to help educate the general public on the effectiveness of sound vaccination protocols in advancing animal and public health and will advocate for the increased availability of animal vaccines that are safe, efficacious, scientifically based, and clinically practical, to provide practitioners with a basis for developing vaccination programs that maximize the benefits and minimize the associated risks for the patients under their care.
