Kinmen receives OIE certificate for being FMD-free with vaccine

Taipei, July 16 (CNA) Outlying Kinmen County has been officially recognized by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) as foot-and-mouth disease-free with the use of vaccines, the Council of Agriculture (COA) said Monday.

An award ceremony attended by Council of Agriculture Minister Lin Tsung-hsien (林聰賢) was held in Kinmen County Hall to present the certificate to Kinmen County Magistrate Chen Fu-hai (陳福海).

Lin, who first received the accreditation on behalf of Kinmen during the 86th OIE General Session held in Paris in May, praised the offshore county for achieving FMD-free status, signifying that its control efforts are in accordance with the world body's standards.

According to the COA, Taiwan proper, Penghu and Matsu were officially given the "FMD-free with vaccination" designation by the OIE last year.

The OIE currently recognizes two FMD-free categories, one "with" and one "without" the use of vaccination, and the government is now seeking to achieve the status of FMD-free without vaccination, the COA said.

Since July 1, authorities in Taiwan, Penghu and Matsu have begun encouraging farmers to raise their hogs without vaccines and to obtain animal health certificates prior to selling their products, it said.

The government will work closely with Kinmen authorities to help local farmers strengthen immunization and disease prevention in an effort to achieve the ultimate goal of achieving an FMD-free environment without vaccines in the near future, the COA said.
