Summary

The present study demonstrated that an inactivated vaccine designed for active immunization of adult rabbits can produce a passive antibody immunity against RHDV-2 in rabbit kits without implementing a tailor-made administration program. Moreover, the produced immunity is likely to cover the early life of rabbits at least until they turn suitable to be vaccinated (older than 30 days of life).
