Swine Influenza Vaccine, H1n1 And H3n2, Killed Virus, Mycoplasma Hyopneumoniae Bacterin

MaxiVac Platinum® vaccine is indicated for use in healthy pigs 5 weeks of age or older as an aid in the prevention of pneumonia caused by Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and in the reduction of disease due to swine influenza virus type A, H1N1 and H3N2. The vaccine has been shown to reduce pneumonia, clinical signs and virus shedding due to H1N1 and H3N2 swine influenza viruses.


Shake well. Using aseptic technique, inject 2 mL intramuscularly (IM) into healthy pigs 5 weeks of age or older. Revaccinate with 2 mL 2-3 weeks after initial vaccination. Pigs nursing non-immune dams can be safely and effectively vaccinated at weaning. Pigs from immune dams should be vaccinated when maternal antibody levels will allow active immunization. Duration of immunity to H3N2 has been demonstrated by challenge to be at least two months following vaccination.

MaxiVac Platinum Caution

For veterinary use only. Store at 2°-7°C (35°-45°F). Do not freeze. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. If allergic response occurs, administer epinephrine.


Gentamicin, ampicillin and thimerosal.


Extreme caution should be used when injecting any oil emulsion vaccine to avoid injecting your own finger or hand. Accidental injection can cause serious local reaction. Contact a physician immediately if accidental injection occurs.
