Temporal evolution of rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) and impact of vaccination during the RHD epidemic in Spain (2013-2015)

New RHD variant (RHDV-2) emerged in Spain in 2011, sparking an emergency response that included the provisional licencing of RHDV-2 vaccines. The aim of this study was to investigate the temporal evolution of RHDV (2013-2015), and the impact of vaccination as a control measure in Spain.

The results of this study, in agreement with other recent publications, support the fast spread of RHDV-2, and the displacement of classical RHDV in Spain. It also provides new insights on the role of vaccination in the virus spread during the RHD epidemic. A geographical and temporal association was observed regardless of the vaccination program that was established. It is necessary to continue implementing surveillance and vaccination programs in order to control the epidemiological evolution and reduce the economic consequences of this disease.
