Suspension for injection.

Target Species

Gilts, sows and boars.

Indications for use, specifying the target species

For active immunisation of breeding pigs (sows, gilts and boars) against porcine parvovirosis, to reduce the number of stillbirths and mummified piglets, and against erysipelas to reduce or prevent clinical symptoms.

The onset of immunity is obtained from 2 to 3 weeks after the primary vaccination.

A duration of immunity up to 9 months and 11 months following vaccination has been proven for the parvovirus component and the erysipelas component, respectively.



Special warnings for each target species

Primary vaccination against porcine parvovirosis should not be carried out in the presence of maternally derived antibodies. Vaccinate only healthy animals.

Adverse reactions

Vaccination can occasionally cause reactions of hypersensitivity in some animals, particularly in those animals sensitised by the erysipelas infection. In such case, appropriate treatment such as adrenaline should be provided.

Rarely, vaccination can induce a small local reaction

Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

The vaccine is safe for use during pregnancy and lactation. However, avoid vaccination during the 3 weeks following service mating.

Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

No information is available on the safety and efficacy on the concurrent use of PARVORUVAX with any other vaccine.

It is therefore recommended that no other vaccine be administered within 14 days before or after vaccination with PARVORUVAX.
