Core vs. Risk-Based Vaccinations

text size

Together, you and your veterinarian can evaluate your horse’s unique situation and create an individualized vaccination program to help protect him from disease all year long. 

  • Core vaccinations: recommended for all horses because the diseases are prevalent, highly infectious, have the potential to cause serious disease, pose a threat to human health or are required by law.

  • Risk-based vaccinations: should be considered based on the disease threats in the area and the horse’s risk of exposure.
