Vaccination was 100% and done twice a year with trivalent (O, A and Asia1) vaccine. Serum samples of 10 cattle and 10 buffalo before vaccination and 21 to 30 days post vaccination were collected and screened for level of type specific neutralizing antibodies by Liquid Phase Blocking ELISA(LPB ELISA) developed by the central FMD laboratory before launch of the FMD CP in the country.
