thiomersal NMT 0.2 mg,
medium with immunogen 1.64 ± 0.01 ml.
An active prophylactic immunization of pigs from 6 weeks of age against porcine reproduction and respiratory syndrome of pigs (PRRS). The immunity develops within 3 weeks after primary vaccination and the full immunity is reached after 3 to 4 weeks after re vaccination. Sufficient immunity persists for 4 to 6 months. Colostral immunity decreases in piglets in dependence on their age and it persists for approximately 2 to 3 months.
Do not use in animals with developed clinical signs of the disease, animals suffering from a high temperature and pregnant animals 2 weeks prior to expected farrowing.
Dosage and method of administration
The immunization dose per 1 animal is 2 ml, irrespective of sex and weight. The vaccine should be administered deep intramuscularly (i.m.) at the site of the neck, behind the ear.
The basic immunization scheme is primary vaccination with re‑vaccination. To guarantee a broader immunity spectrum, it is advisable to perform a second re-vaccination after 3 to 4 weeks after the first re-vaccination; in pregnant animals it is after 6 to 4 weeks prior to expected farrowing. To immunize the individual categories of pigs the following immunization schemas are recommended:
Primary vaccination at an age of 5 to 6 months (prior to mating) with re‑vaccination over 3 to 4 weeks.
Re-vaccination is to be carried out 6 to 4 weeks prior to the expected farrowing.
Primary vaccination prior to mating with re‑vaccination after 3 to 4 weeks.
Repeated re-vaccination is carried out always 6 to 4 weeks prior to the next expected farrowing. In case the period between two farrowing exceeds 10 months, it is advisable to perform primary vaccination and re-vaccination according to the above mentioned process.
Primary vaccination at an age of 6 to 10 weeks with re‑vaccination after 3 to 4 weeks.
Primary vaccination at an age of 6 months (or prior to their inclusion into the herd) with the first re‑vaccination after 3 to 4 weeks after primary vaccination and with following repeated re-vaccinations every 4 to 6 months. (It is possible to re‑vaccinate even in shorter intervals e.g. after 3 to 4 months.)
Re-vaccination at an age of 6 months (or prior to the inclusion into the herd) with subsequent re-vaccinations every 4 to 6 months (It is possible to re-vaccinate even in shorter intervals e.g. after 3 to 4 months.)
At collective immunization of animal, it is advisable to primary vaccinate all animals independently on category and age with a following re-vaccination after 3 to 4 weeks. The above-mentioned immunization schemes are only of an orientation character. The scope of immunization is at discretion of the veterinary doctor, and it also depends on a particular epizootological situation. The immunization schema can be conformed to reproductive cycle. Specific colostral immunity may negatively influence creation of post‑vaccination immunity in dependence on its level.
