To the user: This product contains mineral oil. Accidental administration/self administration may result in severe pain and swelling, particularly if administered into a joint or finger, and in rare cases could result in the loss of the affected finger if prompt medical attention is not given. If you are accidentally administered with this product, seek prompt medical advice even if only a very small amount is administered and take the package leaflet with you. If pain persists for more than 12 hours after medical examination, seek medical advice again.
To the physician: This product contains mineral oil. Even if small amounts have been administered, accidental administration with this product can cause intense swelling, which may, for example, result in ischaemic necrosis and even the loss of a digit. Expert, PROMPT, surgical attention is required and may necessitate early incision and irrigation of the administration area, especially where there is involvement of finger pulp or tendon.
A mean transient increase in body temperature of about 0.7 °C, in individual pigs up to 2 °C, may occur on the day of vaccination. The animals return to normal 1 to 2 days after the peak temperature is observed. In individual animals mild systemic reactions may be observed on the day of vaccination consisting of a tendency of the animal to lie down and minor signs of discomfort. Transient local reactions mostly consisting of hard non-painful button-like swellings of a diameter of up to 3 cm can be observed in the majority of the animals. In individual pigs redness and/or a biphasic pattern of the local reactions, consisting of an increase and decrease followed by another increase and decrease of the size, may be observed. The local reactions disappear completely within approximately 7 weeks after vaccination.

Before using the vaccine allow it to reach room temperature (15 °C - 25 °C) and shake well before use.
Avoid introduction of contamination.
No adverse reactions other than those mentioned under section "Adverse reactions" have been observed after administration of a double dose. However, these reactions may be more pronounced. A mean transient temperature increase of 1.0 °C may be observed. Local reactions may be observed with a maximum diameter of up to 7 cm. The local reactions disappear completely within approximately 9 weeks after vaccination.
