San Diego Zoo vaccinate great apes.

We have discussed many animal species that also can contract SarsCov2 including primates, cats, mink, ferrets and to a lesser degree dogs.

Zoetis (a major animal health company that used to be a division of Pfizer before being spun off) has developed this vaccine and now are testing the vaccine.

This is important in an effort to prevent further development of variants and reservoirs of the virus that could complicate elimination of the pandemic and future epidemics.

The USDA is keeping a list of reported confirmed cases in animals.

USDA AHPIS: Cases of SARS-CoV-2 in Animals in the United States

I've seen various reports where cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, quail and geese were challenged with live virus and these did not become infected. Other reports indicated that ferrets, cats, deer mice, hamsters, rabbits can become infected when challenged with the virus. I've not seen reports for sheep and goats.

Vaccinating great apes before humans, not good with that.

IF YOU READ THE REPORT, the vaccine is an entirely different one from the one used in people. It was developed by a drug company ENTIRELY devoted to production of animal products. It in NO WAY takes away from ANY vaccinations to people.

BTW, I saw an article yesterday where a Coronavirus epidemic in PIGS that happened a few years ago resulted in the production of a vaccine and public health tools were used to stem that epidemic. The veterinarians were a little perplexed that they had not been contacted regarding the new SarsCov2

There has been an initiative for the last decade (at least) called ONE HEALTH. It recognizes that the health of all species are inter-related as witnessed by the emergence of multiple new diseases that originated in animals and spread to humans. The initiative coordinates information and research to combat just these types of problems.

"Vaccinating great apes before humans, not good with that." Does azdryheat have the medical knowledge to say this? That treating animals isn't important to human health?

From the CBS Story:
Quote:

Zoetis started development on a COVID-19 vaccine for dogs and cats after the first dog tested positive for the virus in Hong Kong over a year ago, a spokesperson told CBS News. It was deemed safe and effective eight months later — but testing had only been done in dogs and cats.

"Now more than ever before, we can all see the important connection between animal health and human health," the spokesperson said. "While thankfully a COVID vaccine is not needed for cats and dogs at this time, we have applied our early development work to help the Great Apes at the San Diego Zoo and in other species on an experimental basis for emergency uses."

This is wonderful! Yes, scarily, we are all interconnected even more so today, than decades ago. In spite of the conspiracists, I truly believe Covid originated from a fresh meat market because species-to-species viruses happens often enough - and look how fast it spread around the world?!

The story below describes a new situation where a mutant of Sars-CoV-2 found in minks (in Poland) spread to a person. This is why surveillance and potential vaccinations for animals is important for the safety of humans. Not doing so is short sighted and dangerous for us.
