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.

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

Hi all. I'm very worried about my rabbit who was vaccinated with Filavac (RHD2 vaccine) at the vets on Wednesday. Within 12 hours his ears were red hot and he seemed a bit off colour. By 24 hours after he was still subdued and seemed to have stiff legs, stretching every time he moved, and he was very clingy and wanted to be snuggled. Now, at 56 hours later, having eaten his nuggets a few hours ago, he turned down a piece of carrot and then even turned down a peanut which he usually goes crazy for. He's being very subdued and sleepy and moving his head slowly but jerkily in the way that he does when he's injured himself and not eaten for a while. He's still pooping but his currants have been very small the last two days too. Has anyone else had this happen? They were all slightly off colour when they had the Filavac last year, but not to this extent, I'm worried silly and not sure what to do to help.

Received confirmation today that our rabbit which we only had for two days died from RHD2. He was due to be vaccinated only a few days after we got him. We're in Canterbury just to warn anyone in the area.

I made a post last week but now I can't find it so I need to ask again. The 2 vaccines I can find near me are nobivac and filovac. What is covered in each one? And what gap have your vets recommended between each? Thanks again.

Hi thanks for the add, my rabbit is up to date with normal vaccines and I've got him booked in Monday for vhd2 one, I've been reading, is this going to make him poorly? Very concerned about him and hate the thought it might make him sick! X

Thanks to this page my 8 bunnies are now vaccinated against Myxi and RHD 1&2. I've not heard of any cases near to me (nr Derby) and neither had my vet but better safe than sorry and money well spent. Thanks again for all the info. 🐰
