Rabbit Vaccinations

Rabbits are routinely vaccinated against the Rabbit Calicivirus Disease (RCD) – also known as haemorrhagic viral disease. One dose will provide protection against RCD for twelve months in rabbits older than 10 weeks of age.

Vaccination against myxomatosis is not available in Australia. Myxomatosis is used to control pest rabbits. It is the government’s concern that the weakened viruses contained in the vaccine could spread from domestic rabbits to the pest rabbit population, immunising them against myxomatosis.
