The new vaccine will provide 12 months of immunity from erysipelas, porcine parvovirus and leptospirosis.

The novel vaccine, PORCILIS Ery+Parvo+Lepto offers protection against three of the biggest diseases that cause reproductive failures in pigs.

Alexandre Carvalho, business unit manager for pigs at MSD Animal Health, explained that this vaccine has the broadest protection against Leptospira on the market, offering protection against nine different serogroups including, Australis and Pomona.

“This vaccine also includes protection against the Tarassov serogroup, which is unique to the product,” he said.

“It’s important to note that PORCILIS Ery+Parvo+Lepto can be used for mass vaccination and during pregnancy, which hasn’t been possible with previous products.”

He added that MSD is pleased to launch the new vaccine to support customers in the control of these important diseases.

“We want to offer our customers solutions to enable them to feel confident about the protection of their herds,” said Mr Carvalho.
