Vaccination timing and safety

Timing

Healthy swine 3 weeks of age or older should receive two 2-mL doses administered intramuscularly approximately 3 weeks apart. In young pigs, vaccinate after maternally derived antibodies to SIV have declined.

Safe in pregnant sows and gilts

Safety of FluSure XP® in pregnant sows and gilts was demonstrated in three clinical studies.1,2,3 Out of 449 pregnant sows:

  • No systemic reactions were reported
  • 99.5% of vaccinates were free of injection-site reactions
  • Vaccinated sows farrowed at 97.9% to 98.7% compared to controls who farrowed at 96.0-98.5%
  • No differences were observed between vaccinated sows and saline-vaccinated control sows in:
    • Number of pigs born live
    • Number of dead pigs
    • Number of mummified pigs
