Second dose: given two weeks before farrowing is expected.

Re-vaccination scheme

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Vaccinate only healthy animals.

The vaccine is safe for use during pregnancy. No information is available on specific use during lactation.

Occasional hypersensitivity reactions may occur. Prompt subcutaneous administration of adrenalin may relieve the condition.

Syringes and needles should be sterilised before use and the injection should be made through an area of clean, dry skin, taking precautions against contamination.

In most pigs, a slight to moderate swelling (up to 6 cm) may be seen at the injection site after vaccination. The swelling will decline and disappear but may last from 14 to 21 days in some pigs. No increased reactions have been seen after administration of an overdose.

No information is available on the safety and efficacy from the concurrent use of this vaccine with any other. A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be made on a case by case basis.
