Preventing L. hardjo-bovis works best when a vaccination program is implemented when heifers are young. This helps reduce the risk of the animal becoming a carrier.
Many of the Hardjo vaccines available were licensed many years ago and were not subjected to rigorous efficacy trials using virulent strains of serovar Hardjo, routes of challenge which mimic natural exposure, and modern methods of determining if challenged cattle became infected with serovar Hardjo.
She found hardjo-bovis present in more than 55 percent of dairy herds tested across the United States and as high as 90 percent in California.

Angus Productions Inc.'s coverage of the DENVER, CO (Feb. 3, 2006) — New Vira Shield ® 6+L5 HB is the first and only inactivated viral vaccine available in combination with L. hardjo-bovis, the most common U.S. strain of bovine leptospirosis.
The Hardjo form of leptospirosis ■ ■ This is transmitted from cattle to humans. What are the symptoms? Both diseases start with a flu-like illness with a persistent and severe headache, which can lead to vomiting and muscle pains and ultimately to jaundice, meningitis and kidney failure.
Based on these findings, a presumptive diagnosis of Lepto hardjo bovis was made. Leptospirosis is a widespread disease that affects virtually all mammals.
