Ingelvac Prrs Mlv Vaccine

For vaccination of healthy, susceptible swine as an aid in the prevention of respiratory disease and an aid in the reduction of reproductive disease due to Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) virus. The duration of immunity is at least 4 months or throughout the finishing period or gestation. For use only in healthy, susceptible animals in “PRRS virus positive herds” per label directions. PRRS positive herds means any herds that are PRRS serological positive, PRRS isolation positive, or PRRS clinical symptom positive. Many factors must be considered in determining a sound PRRS vaccination program for a particular farm. To be most effective, the vaccine must be administered properly to healthy animals maintained in a proper environment under good management.

Stressed or immunosuppressed pigs should not be vaccinated as the efficacy of the vaccine in these animals is unknown. Seldom does one vaccination under field condition produce lifetime protection for all individuals in a given herd. The level of individual animal and herd immunity required will vary with management practices, the degree of exposure to PRRS virus, and the level of susceptibility of each animal. The benefits and risks from vaccination will vary in part with the level of PRRS virus in the herd. The PRRS status of the herd or individual animals should be assessed by virus isolation, serological, or other diagnostic tests. Therefore, the vaccination program must be carefully planned and implemented following label and insert indications and precautions and the direction of a veterinarian.

Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) is a $664 million dollar problem.3 It has a devastating impact on pig performance, overall production and profits. Unlike many other swine diseases, the unique, single-strand RNA structure of the PRRS virus has made it a challenge for a generation of pork producers. For over 20 years, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc. has been helping the industry combat PRRS. With Ingelvac PRRS® vaccines, technical expertise, collaborative research and diagnostic advancements, we are working with veterinarians and producers to win the battles against this challenging disease.
