Reproductive and Respiratory Forms, Modified Live Virus

Atypical Virus

Veterinary Use Only

Read entire insert before use.

Ingelvac PRRS ATP Indications

For vaccination of healthy, susceptible swine as an aid in the reduction of disease associated with atypical porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, reproductive and respiratory forms.

Recommended for use in healthy, susceptible swine in PRRS virus positive herds only, per label directions.

Directions For Use

Rehydrate the vaccine by adding the full contents of the accompanying liquid diluent to the vaccine vial. Shake well and use immediately. Rehydrate only with the diluent provided; do not mix with other materials.

Administration and dosage: Sows and gilts: Using aseptic technique, inject a single 2 mL dose intramuscularly at 3-4 weeks prior to breeding for the reproductive form of PRRS. The duration of immunity is at least 4 months or throughout gestation. Revaccinate prior to each subsequent breeding. Piglets: Using aseptic technique, inject a single 2 mL dose intramuscularly to swine 3 weeks of age or older for the respiratory form of PRRS. The duration of immunity is at least 4 months or throughout the finishing period.

Precautions

Administer only to healthy pigs, gilts or sows in PRRS virus positive herds and only by intramuscular injection. Do not vaccinate breeding age boars or pregnant females. Administer the complete 2 mL dose to each animal vaccinated. Efficacy and safety of the vaccine at other than the dose or route prescribed on the label is unknown and, therefore, not approved nor recommended. Studies to demonstrate protection against typical isolates of PRRS have not been conducted. Anaphylactoid reactions may occur. Specific herds may be particularly sensitive. If human exposure occurs, administer first aid and consult a physician immediately.

Antidote: Epinephrine.

Preservative: Neomycin.

Storage

Store in dark at 2-7°C. Do not freeze. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not use bottles of damaged product. Do not store reconstituted vaccine.

Withdrawal Period: Vaccinated pigs are not to be harvested for human consumption before 21 days after vaccination.

Disposal

After use, burn containers and all unused contents.

Expiration Date: Consult the outer carton for the last date this package of vaccine is acceptable for use.

Vaccination Program: 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. 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 levels 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 in collaboration with the herd veterinarian following label and insert indications and precautions.

Previous or active PRRS virus or other infection: The effect of concurrent or previous infections at or around the time of vaccination on the efficacy of this vaccine in reducing or modifying PRRS virus disease in pigs is not known.

Shedding and transmission of vaccine virus by vaccinates: Vaccine virus may be shed and transmitted to other populations of swine which are in contact with vaccinated swine. The duration of potential vaccine virus transmission may vary.

Vaccine virus is found at varying times post-vaccination at locations from which the potential for shedding exists (tonsil, nasal mucosa, urine, feces). The chances of vaccine virus shedding may be increased when animals are treated with glucocorticoids and possibly by disease or environmental conditions which stress pigs and elevate levels of endogenous glucocorticoids.

Nonvaccinated pigs in contact with Ingelvac PRRS® ATP vaccinated pigs may seroconvert to vaccine virus. Use of the vaccine on farms or transport of pigs from the farms where vaccine has been used to farms wanting to remain PRRS virus seronegative is contraindicated.

Vaccination of adult boars may result in the shedding of vaccine virus in the semen. Because the impact of shedding is not known, do not use in boars of breeding age.
