Porcine Circovirus Vaccine, Type 2, Killed Baculovirus Vector

For use in healthy swine as an aid in the prevention of viremia, as an aid in the reduction of virus shedding and as an aid in the reduction of lymphoid infection caused by porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV 2). Efficacy for at least 20 weeks following completion of vaccination has been demonstrated.

ADMINISTRATION AND DOSAGE OPTIONS: Allow the vaccine to reach an ambient temperature of 16°-27°C (60°-80°F) and shake well prior to use. Use aseptic technique. OPTION 1: Vaccinate pigs intramuscularly at 3 weeks of age or older with a single 2 mL dose. OPTION 2: Vaccinate pigs intramuscularly as early as 3 days of age with a 1 mL dose followed by a second 1 mL dose 3 weeks later.

CAUTIONS: Store at 2°-7°C (35°-45°F). Do not freeze. Use entire contents when first opened; do not save partial contents. Dispose of containers and all unused vaccine according to local biohazardous waste disposal regulations. Use only in healthy swine. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. A significant number of vaccinated pigs may experience localized adverse reactions, especially following booster vaccination. Localized reactions resolve 1-35 days following vaccination. If allergic reaction occurs, treat with epinephrine. In the event of high maternal antibodies, vaccination at 3 days of age is not recommended. Caution should be used to avoid injecting your own fingers, hands, or other body parts. Accidental injection can cause serious local reactions. Contact a physician immediately.
