Description

Gripovac 3 suspension for injection for pigs 50ml 25 dose.

Presentation

Suspension for injection. Each 2 ml dose contains inactivated swine Influenza A virus strains H3N2 (at least 10.53 log2 GMNU*), H1N1 (at least 10.22 log2 GMNU*) and H1N2 (at least 12.34 log2 GMNU*). Contains carbomer 971 P NF as adjuvant and thiomersal as excipient.

*GMNU = geometric mean of neutralizing units induced in guinea pigs after two vaccinations with 0.5ml Gripovac 3.

Uses

For active immunisation of pigs from the age of 56 days onwards, including pregnant sows, against swine influenza caused by subtypes H1N1, H3N2 and H1N2 to reduce clinical signs and viral lung load after infection.

Onset of immunity: 7 days after primary vaccination

Duration of immunity: 4 months in pigs vaccinated between the ages of 56 and 96 days and 6 months in pigs vaccinated for the first time at 96 days and above.

Active immunisation of pregnant sows, following completion of primary immunisation, by administration of a single dose 14 days prior to farrowing to develop high colostral immunity which provides clinical protection of piglets for at least 33 days after birth.

Can be used during pregnancy and lactation.

Dosage and administration

For intramuscular use.

Piglets:

Primary vaccination: 2 injections of one dose (2 ml)

- From the age of 96 days, with an interval of 3 weeks between injections, to achieve duration of immunity over 6 months.

or

- Between the ages of 56 and 96 days, with an interval of 3 weeks between injections, to achieve duration of immunity over 4 months.

Gilts and sows:

Primary vaccination: see above.

A booster is possible at each stage of pregnancy and lactation. When vaccination is performed 14 days prior to farrowing with one dose (2 ml), it provides maternally-derived immunity to the piglets which protects them from clinical signs of influenza at least until day 33 after birth.

Maternally-derived immunity in the piglets interacts with antibody induction. Generally, maternally-derived antibodies induced by vaccination last for approximately 5-8 weeks after birth. In particular cases of multiple contacts of the sows with antigens (field infections + vaccination) the antibodies transmitted to the piglets may last until week 12 of life. In the latter case piglets should be vaccinated after the age of 96 days.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Keep out of the reach and sight of children.

For animal treatment only.

In case of accidental self-injection only a minor injection site reaction is expected.

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

A transient slight swelling may occur after vaccination at the site of injection in a small number of pigs, regressing within 2 days. Occasionally, a slight transient rectal temperature increase might occur after vaccination. No adverse reactions except these were observed after the administration of a double dose (4 ml) of the vaccine.

Withdrawal period:

Zero days.
