[Practical implementation of oral vaccination of foxes in canton Tessin].Parassitologia. 1988 Jan-Apr; 30(1):59-66.P
The oral fox vaccination campaigns in 1984/85 in canton Tessin in Switzerland are described in detail. An area of 197 km2 was treated 4 times with 2260 baits in order to prevent the invasion of a rabies epizootic from abroad. A comparison is made to the rest of Switzerland, where from 1978 to 1986 a total of 545,399 baits were distributed. An evaluation of the campaigns in 10 cantons revealed that the total costs varied between 2.17 Sfr (1.54 $) and 5.84 Sfr (4.16 $) per bait.
