The bluetongue virus (BTV) is a reemerging worldwide disease transmitted by insects of the genus Culicoides that affects domestic and some wild ruminants. Currently, it is a disease of great importance in Europe due to the economic losses it causes. Since 2002 in Spain, there have been outbreaks of 4 different serotypes of BTV, each with a different behaviour in terms of distribution, population and pathogenicity. Control in Spain has been possible through the use of different prophylactic measures, but the main tool for the eradication is vaccination. The aim of this work is to assess the impact of vaccination in Spain, through the study of the vaccination influence over BTV serotypes’ evolution in Spain (2000-2008)
