||The incidence of brucellosis in humans is directly associated with its existence in animals, particularly cows, sheep and goats. Prophylaxis is carried out in Spain by vaccinating female animals bred for reproduction with B-19 or Rev 1 vaccine. This system is slow and expensive and its applicability in Spain in the case of small ruminants is doubtful. The authors of this article propose massive vaccination of adult cattle in areas with a high risk of contagion using reduced doses (5 x 108) of B-19 vaccine. In animals bred for reproduction, vaccination should be continued using standard doses. For sheep and goats massive vaccination with live vaccine Rev 1 (5 x 108 doses) is proposed. Standard vaccination with Rev 1 should be continued and even extended to 3 to 5 months old males bred for reproduction.
