The immune response and development of effective vaccines play crucial roles in combatting ruminant diseases, which pose significant threats to livestock health and agricultural productivity. Ruminants, such as cattle, sheep, and goats, are susceptible to various infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Understanding the intricacies of the immune response in these animals is essential for designing and deploying successful vaccination strategies.
The immune response in ruminants involves a complex interplay of innate and adaptive immunity, each contributing to the defense against pathogens. Innate immunity provides an immediate, non-specific defense mechanism, while adaptive immunity confers long-lasting protection by generating specific antibodies and memory cells. Vaccines harness the immune system's memory capacity to stimulate a controlled immune response, preparing the animal to mount a rapid and effective defense upon subsequent exposure to the pathogen.
We encourage all the scientific community to contribute to this topic, which explores the fundamental mechanisms underlying the immune response in ruminants and delves into the challenges and advancements in developing vaccines tailored to their specific needs. By enhancing our understanding of the immune response and optimizing vaccination strategies, we can significantly reduce disease burden, improve animal welfare, and support sustainable agriculture.
We are looking forward to receiving your interesting manuscripts.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Vaccines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
