Talking about vaccinating - Are we talking about PMV vaccine?

Maybe I am out of touch as we have not had pigeons for some years - But I thought we HAVE to vaccinate ALL our birds against PMV at least once a year. If not you could not race them.

I remember a few of us, going around to our clubs members lofts, injecting them all. They all had to be signed off or else they could not race.

Is that not the case nowadays? I heard Geoff Cooper saying (on camera) that he did not vaccinate his birds - how does he get away with it?

its compulsory to vaccinate and have a vaccination sheet signed by a witness ...those that don't vaccinate are playing a game of Russian roulette as paramyxo virus is airborne and actually carried by wild birds ...my friend never used to vaccinate his stock then one year they got the disease and after that he always did them because its a horrible disease to see not nice at all and anyway by vaccinating you stimulate the ybs immune system ...the coopers were referring to paratyphoid/salmonella vaccine which I don't see any point in doing as their are many different strains of salmonella and the vaccine covers about 3

I used to vaccinate years ago. Have not done so for 15 years. No problems here. Anyway, just my way of doing things. The following is a long read but worth the time.
