Heat-resistant vaccines that remain effective at room temperature can help significantly reduce costs and improve animal health in Europe’s warmer climes as well as developing regions.
Vaccines typically must be kept at cold, sometimes subzero, temperatures until they are administered to remain
effective. This can hold back vaccination efforts in warmer and indeed the more tropical countries, or areas where refrigeration is not possible. Heat-resistant vaccines have been developed for diseases more common in tropical areas, including rinderpest, and are currently being developed to protect against other infections.
