So far I have not found an answer yet but I would like to know whether a pigeon who has recovered from PMV can be infected newly again by another pigeon? I do not mean showing symptoms again after some time in stress situations. Or does the virus live kind of dormant in the very same pigeon forever, giving some kind of immunity towards new infections similar to a measles infection?

And if a new infection is possible, is there a chance to vaccinate the pigeon while showing no symptoms?

Petra...I don't know for sure but I would wagger a guess that they could be infected by a different strain...but that is just a guess.
