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.

Has anyone used virkon powder sachets in their washing machine to clean vetbed/towels etc. Do you think it works or does it get too diluted dya think? Perhaps better to put in a bath then spin in machine? Thanks

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.buntools.org.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 :)
