Since the beginning of the first half of 2018, almost 36% of the total number of reindeer has been vaccinated in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. About it writes the local "Komsomolskaya Pravda".
Almost 235 thousand deer - so many animals; they received a life-saving vaccine against anthrax this year. All doses of the vaccine are purchased from the money allocated by the federal budget to fight the disease. Over the past two weeks, almost 83 heads have been planted in Yamal.
To implement the reindeer vaccination plan, field vaccination teams from local veterinary services are working in seven municipalities of the Yamal region.
The grafted deer are marked with special tags. There are about seven hundred thousand doses of vaccines in the region’s reserve, and another 650 thousand deer need to be vaccinated.
