Minks to Get Covid Jabs in Finland After Danes Culled Millions

  • Half a million jabs to be given to minks against Covid-19
  • Nordic nation’s program is the first in the European Union

Keen to avoid the total annihilation of farmed minks as seen in Denmark during the pandemic, the Finnish fur industry is organizing an inoculation program for the animals. 

The Nordic nation has about half a million doses of a domestically developed vaccine ready to be deployed this winter, enough to protect the entire population of breeding minks from Covid-19. It’s the first such program in the European Union.
