    This question was asked during the webinar on "The Increasing Threat of Canine Leptospirosis ...":

    Does vaccination provide any protection against non-included serovars?

    Answer provided by Dr. Jason Stull & Dr. Michelle Evason:

    At this time, we do not know.  There is some evidence that partial immunity to heterologous serogroups occurs after vaccination.  Further research is needed.
