RHD2map UK
Map of RHD2 spread & vaccine availability in the UK

This website is to help map the availability of vaccines in the UK for RHD2 (RVHD2, Rabbit Haemmorhagic disease variant 2).  

Click the 'vets with vaccines' tab at the top to access the map of vets who are reported to have access to the RHD2 vaccine. The vaccine map is populated with all the data reported to us via social media plus reports found on veterinary practices own websites/social media pages and contact made via this website.  

Click the 'reported cases' tab to see reported confirmed and suspected cases of RHD2 from 2016 onwards.  Please do submit reports of confirmed (by laboratory report) or suspected cases so that we can plot them; we are completely reliant on your reports to give us the information for the map. Thank you.

For more information about RHD2, please visit the facebook group linked below and read the pinned post at the top of the group (you may need to 'view pinned post' if using a mobile device).  This post contains links to key pieces of information about RHD2. 

The map is not officially affiliated to any group or organisation but has been created and updated by volunteers who have busy lives doing other things, so please be patient with us and please do let us know (nicely) if you find anything that needs updating or have any feedback, thank you :)  

If you have found this map useful, please consider making a donation to the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund (RWAF); it is the hard work of their veterinary advisor Dr Richard Saunders which has made this vaccine so readily available for us all.

Further information:
There is an associated Facebook Group and
A blog by the admin of that group.

Please use this thread to report any confirmed or suspected cases of RHD/RHD2 and I will add other reported cases to this thread so that we can keep everything in one place once I've added them to the map. For the purposes of this list - confirmed means that a sample has been sent to the lab and the lab has said 'yes, this is RHD/RHD2'. Anything else is suspected - although obviously there will be variability in the level of certainty we may have around these cases, depending on the context. Please give as much information as you are able, including approximate location (nearest town), number of rabbits affected, reason for suspecting RHD. Thank you.

Please add your reports about vets stocking/ordering the vaccine to this thread, although please help us by checking the map first to see if it's already there before reporting! Link to map: http://rhd2map.ajltech.co.uk If you've posted on a separate thread, I'll move the details here and then delete the original report so that we can try and keep the group tidy and easy to read. It's nothing personal, just trying to keep things tidy! In this thread please can we stick to information about practices that do or will have it and not stray into those that don't (of which there are thousands) so that the thread stays easier to read, thank you :)

I got my two girls beginning of September, I already knew about mixy vaccination, this is a disease that us British owners just know about, BUT i knew nothing of RVD orRVD2 until I joined the rabbit groups on Facebook, my vet said that as it wasn’t in the area I didn’t need to have them vaccinated, but after i researched and found the map with known cases I decided to trust my gut and found another vet that had the RVD2 vaccine in stock and got them done straight away, that was two weeks ago and I’m hoping and praying they will not catch it. What I’m trying to say is there is no awareness outside of these bunny groups, I’ve just contacted the rspca as I went on their website and it wasn’t even mentioned on their list of vaccines that rabbits need to have.

Hi All. We have recently vaccinated our pair (on Monday) with RVHD2. One of my buns is really struggling since then. I didn't notice anything on Tuesday but Wednesday - eating far less and not moving much. We have seen the vet yesterday and she had an injection to help her guts moving plus other tablets to dissolve and we are now syringe feeding her. I don't know if she will recover, I still hope this is just a phase and she will get back to normal. Is it likely that she has had a bad reaction to the vaccine? Does anyone else has experienced that after vaccinating ? Or do you think it's strangely unrelated? My other bun is totally fine, his playful normal self... For info Vets4Pets in Chesterfield had that vaccine in stock.
