More than twenty veterinarians gave evidence early in July to the Queensland parliament’s inquiry into the Hendra virus vaccine.

At the $1.5 million Tatts Club Tiara Race Day at Eagle Farm in Brisbane, seven out of the 10 winners had been vaccinated against Hendra virus.

The AVA, on behalf of its 9,000 members, has provided a detailed submission to the Queensland government's inquiry into the Hendra virus vaccine.
