Operator warnings

In case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.

Adverse reactions

A mean transient increase in body temperature of 1.5 °C, in some pigs up to 3 °C, which could lead to an abortion, can generally be measured on the day of vaccination or the following day. Reduced activity and lack of appetite on the day of vaccination very commonly occurs and/or a transient swelling (max diameter: 10 cm) for up to two weeks may arise at the site of injection. In very rare cases other immediate hypersensitivity reactions, e.g. vomiting, dyspnoea and shock may occur.

Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

Can be used during pregnancy.


No information is available on the safety and efficacy of this vaccine when used with any other veterinary medicinal product. A decision to use this vaccine before or after any other veterinary medicinal product therefore needs to be made on a case by case basis.

Amounts to be administered and administration route

Before use, allow the vaccine to reach room temperature. Shake vigorously before and at intervals during use. Avoid introduction of contamination. Administer one dose of 2 ml by intramuscular injection to pigs of 18 weeks of age and older. The vaccine should preferably be administered just behind the ear.

Vaccination scheme:

Primary vaccination: inject one dose (2 ml) per pig, followed by a second injection 4 weeks after the first injection. The first injection should be administered 6 weeks before the expected date of farrowing.

Revaccination: a single injection of one dose (2 ml) should be carried out 2 to 4 weeks prior to each subsequent farrowing.


Apart from a higher average transient increase in body temperature on the day of vaccination or the following day, no adverse reactions other than those mentioned under section "Adverse reactions" can be expected following the administration of a double dose of vaccine.

Withdrawal periods

Zero days.

Pharmacological particulars

Immunological Properties

Pharmacotherapeutic group: inactivated bacterial vaccine.

ATCvet code: QI09AB04.

To stimulate active immunity in order to provide passive immunity to the progeny against progressive atrophic rhinitis. Dermonecrotic toxin producing P. multocida is the pathogen responsible for turbinate atrophy in progressive atrophic rhinitis. Colonisation of the surface of the nasal mucosa by P. multocida is most often promoted by B. bronchiseptica. The vaccine contains a non-toxic recombinant derivative of the P. multocida toxin and inactivated B. bronchiseptica cells. The immunogens are incorporated in an adjuvant based on dl-a-tocopherol. Neonatal piglets derive passive immunity via ingestion of colostrum from vaccinated sows/gilts.
