CCA welcomes International Vaccine Centre at U of S

Calgary, AB – The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) today welcomed the new International Vaccine Centre (InterVac) at the University of Saskatchewan, a state of the art facility that will help build Canada’s critical research capacity in the prevention and control of infectious diseases that bridge animal and human health.

InterVac will provide North America’s only containment level 3 facility capable of accommodating high containment, large animal clinical vaccine trials. This will facilitate the development and initial efficacy testing of vaccines under controlled and contained conditions in advance of commercial field trials.
