Vaccines contain antigens from viruses, bacteria, bacterial toxins, or parasites. They are given to pigs, usually by injection, to stimulate an immune response which will protect the pigs against later natural infection with the organism from which the vaccine was derived. Most stimulate both a humoral response and a cell-mediated response. Vaccines can be live, containing living organisms which will multiply in the pig, or inactivated, containing only killed organisms which will not multiply in the pig.
In live vaccines the organisms has usually been attenuated (i.e. its virulence has been reduced) so that although it will multiply in the pig it will not normally cause any cause disease. Examples are the PRRS vaccine (although some may cause mild reactions), aujeszky’s disease (pseudorabies) vaccines and classical swine fever vaccines. Live attenuated vaccines have the advantage that because they multiply in the pig they give a bigger antigenic stimulus resulting in stronger longer-lasting immunity. They have the disadvantage that they may die in wrong storage conditions (e.g. heat) or during dosing (e.g. by exposure to antiseptics or disinfectants) and are then useless. It is also important that they are stable and not able to return to full virulence. Inactivated (dead) vaccines may contain whole organisms, antigenic parts of organisms or antigens which have been synthesised chemically. An example of a commonly used whole organism vaccine is the erysipelas vaccine. (In North America such vaccines are often called Bacterins).
Features of Swine Pneumonia Vaccine
Porcine Pili Shield + C Vaccine injection is given to healthy pregnant sows and gilts to control scours in farrowed piglets caused by.
- Clostridium perfringens Type C
- K88, K99, 987P
- F41 piliated Escherichia coli.
For maximum effectiveness in gilts, the initial 2mL injection of the Porcine Pili Shield Vaccine should be given at 5 weeks prior followed by 2 weeks prior to first farrowing to allow antibody development.
While shown to be effective at controlling scours in piglets, it is essential that newborn pigs receive colostrum from the vaccinated dam for the antibodies to be transferred and provide the protection needed. Booster injections should be given for subsequent farrowing periods two weeks prior to delivery.
50 Dose size (100mL)
- 21 day withdrawal period.
- Aluminum hydroxide adjuvant.
- Boosters given 2wks prior to subsequent farrowings.
- Store out of direct sunlight at 2°-7°C (35°-45°F).
- Shake well before using.
