Children are vaccinated before they are ill in order to prevent them from becoming ill.
Animals should be vaccinated before they are ill in order to prevent them from becoming ill.
All animals must be taken for vaccination.
Usually vaccination is compulsory and free of charge.
If all farmers do not take their animals for vaccination, the animals which have not been vaccinated may catch the disease, and it stays in the region.
Even if there has been no contagious disease in a region for a long time, vaccination is stilt necessary. The germs of diseases still exist.
But with the vaccine the germs are not dangerous. If you do not vaccinate, the disease comes back.
Vaccination tires animals a little, but it is not dangerous if the animals are well housed and well fed.
