Dosage and administration

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.
Vaccination programmes
Young growing pigs
Pigs should be at least 6 weeks of age. A course of two vaccinations given 4 weeks apart is recommended.
Breeding stock
Primary vaccination:
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.
Booster vaccination:
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).

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

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.
Withdrawal period
For animal treatment only. Keep out of reach and sight of children.

Further information

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.
