The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of vaccination with VIMCO® (Inactivated vaccine against Staphylococcal mastitis; HIPRA) for subclinical mastitis prevention.


It is highly important to prevent staphylococcal biofilm formation in order to control subclinical mastitis. Therefore vaccines providing a high level of immunity against this biofilm formation are good tools with which to reduce the transmission of staphylococci and new infections. Vaccination with VIMCO® reduced milk losses and the saving reached in the farm was of €22.39 per animal and per year.
