Abstract

Knowledge about immunity to Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in dromedary camels is essential for infection control and vaccination. A longitudinal study of 11 dam-calf pairs showed that calves lose maternal MERS-CoV antibodies 5-6 months postparturition and are left susceptible to infection, indicating a short window of opportunity for vaccination.
