Background information and definitions
Vaccinating marine and freshwater mammals against disease could reduce the spread of disease. However, vaccinating wild mammals can be challenging, due to difficulties in administering vaccines in appropriate doses and on a large scale. Vaccination is only likely to be attempted in certain cases, such as when mammals may be affected by a zoonotic disease that could spread to humans, or when particularly endangered mammal populations are threatened.
