All animals on infected premises are slaughtered to prevent further production of aerosol virus. The farm is then disinfected and movement is controlled within a 10 mile radius of infected premises.

Ring vaccination: If a UK outbreak was uncontained ring vaccination with the relevant virus subtype from the EU vaccine bank would be used to create a barrier of immune stock around the infected areas.

Importation. Ungulates can only be imported from uninfected countries which do not employ vaccination and with the correct documentation. This is because vaccinated stock can be subclinically infected. False tagging and documentation has accompanied cattle from Eastern Europe.

Meat from FMDV enzootic countries, e.g. Argentine or Brazil, must be de-boned and come from approved meat packaging plants.
