Porcilis® PCV ID - The Wait is Over

Porcilis® PCV ID is the first intradermal PCV vaccine that can be administered with a needle-free injector, such as the IDAL® or IDAL 2G. With its specifically formulated 0.2-mL dose, this new vaccine is an industry-advancing alternative to IM PCV vaccines.

It is approved to be used concurrently with Porcilis M Hyo ID Once if administered in a different location on the animal. With this method, animals only need to be handled once to protect against two major swine pathogens – PCV2 and M. hyo.

This approach to vaccination helps advance animal care and well-being with less pain and stress, and less risk of transmitting disease between pigs caused by reusing needles.

With a duration of immunity (DOI) of 23 weeks after vaccination, Porcilis PCV ID effectively controls viraemia and subclinical PCV2 throughout the critical finishing period.
