An inactivated vaccine containing at least 1 ppd Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae antigen, strain M2 (serotype 2) per dose in an aqueous adjuvant (dlαtocopherol 150 mg/dose). The vaccine contains 0.05% formaldehyde as a preservative.
For the active immunisation of sows, gilts and boars as an aid in the control of swine erysipelas.
The dose is 2 ml per pig, given by deep intramuscular injection behind the ear.
Ensure that vaccination equipment is clean and sterile before use.
Young growing pigs
Pigs should be at least 6 weeks of age. A course of two vaccinations given 4 weeks apart is recommended.
For the induction of protection against erysipelas, an initial course of two vaccinations, given 4 weeks apart, is recommended. Where protection against parvovirus is also required, this can be achieved with Porcilis Ery given either 4 weeks before, or 4 weeks after, administration of the combined Porcilis Ery+Parvo vaccine. Boars and gilts should be vaccinated against E. rhusiopathiae at least 2 weeks before mating.
Sows and boars should be revaccinated against erysipelas at six monthly intervals. For sows, this may be during each lactation period, at weaning or during pregnancy (avoiding the last two weeks).
Do not vaccinate unhealthy animals. Do not mix with other vaccines or substances. Other vaccines should not be administered within 14 days before or after vaccination with Porcilis Ery. Vaccination reactions normally consist of a slight (0.5°C), transient (normal within 24 hours) rise in body temperature. A mild local swelling (less than 5 cm in diameter, normal within 3 days) and some reluctance to move may be seen in a very small proportion (<5%) of vaccinated animals.
Stress should be avoided when vaccinating animals, particularly during later stages of pregnancy.
For animal treatment only. Keep out of reach and sight of children.
Store between +2° and +8°C. Store out of light. Do not freeze.
Allow to reach ambient temperature (15°–25°C) before use.
Shake well before and during use. Once opened use entire contents within 10 hours.
Dispose of waste material by boiling, incineration or immersion in an appropriate disinfectant, in accordance with the national requirements.
Multidose vials containing 25 and 50 doses.
A good immune response is reliant on the reaction of an immunogenic agent and a fully competent immune system. Immunogenicity of the vaccine will be reduced by poor storage or inappropriate administration. Immunocompetence of the animal may be compromised by a variety of factors including poor health, nutritional status, genetic factors, concurrent drug therapy and stress.
