Prime Pac PRRS RS Caution

Not for use in pregnant swine or for use in boars. Vaccine virus can shed and be transmitted to other populations of swine in direct or indirect contact with vaccinated swine. The duration of potential vaccine virus transmission may vary. Non-vaccinated pigs in contact with modified live PRRS-vaccinated pigs may seroconvert to vaccine virus. Use of the vaccine in herds intended to remain PRRS virus seronegative is contraindicated. Introduction of vaccinated pigs into herds intended to remain PRRS virus seronegative is contraindicated.

Store at 2° to 8°C (35° to 46°F). Use aseptic technique and only sterile needles and syringes to inject the vaccine. Use entire contents when first opened. Do not mix with other products. Inactivate unused contents before disposal. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. If allergic response occurs, administer epinephrine. In case of human exposure, contact a physician.
