Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is a disease of cattle that has been difficult to control in Nigeria. This study was done to assess the problem associated with the use of the OIE recommended vaccine against the disease in Nigeria. A total of 180 closed ended questionnaires were administered to pastoralists from the six area councils of Federal Capital Territory, to study the problem associated with T1/44 vaccine administration in Abuja, Nigeria. Data was managed using Microsoft excel and SPSS version 21. The study revealed that out of 172 respondents that were aware that a vaccine exists, 93.9% (95%CI: 90.4-97.4%) do vaccinate their cattle against Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia; out of which 46.7% (95%CI: 39.41-53.99%) do an annual vaccination, 4.1% (95%CI: 1.2-7%) vaccinate biennially and 49.1% (95CI: 41.8-56.4%) vaccinate animals once in 5 years. Among the 90 pastoralists that do either a biennial or once in 5 years vaccination, 74.4% (95%CI: 65.38-83.42%) do not follow the recommended vaccination schedule due to post vaccination reactions, which occurred 7- 14 days after vaccination. Majority of these affected respondents manage the reaction by branding with hot objects, while others made use of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agent.
