Marketing authorisation holder and manufacturer responsible for batch release:
IDT Biologika GmbH
RESPIPORC FLU3 suspension for injection for pigs
Each dose of 2 ml contains:Active substances:
1GMNU = Geometric mean of neutralizing units induced in Guinea pigs after twice immunisation with 0.5ml of this vaccine
Carbomer 971 P NF 2.0 mg
Excipient: Thiomersal 0.21 mg
Clear, yellowish orange to pink colored suspension for injection.
Active immunisation of pigs from the age of 56 days onwards including pregnant sows against swine influenza caused by subtypes H1N1, H3N2 and H1N2 to reduce clinical signs and viral lung load after infection.
Onset of immunity:
7 days after primary vaccination
Duration of immunity:
4 months in pigs vaccinated between the age of 56 and 96 days and
6 months in pigs vaccinated for the first time at 96 days and above.
Active immunisation of pregnant sows after finished primary immunisation by administration of a single dose 14 days prior to farrowing to develop high colostral immunity which provides clinical protection of piglets for at least 33 days after birth.
A transient slight swelling may occur on very rare occasions after vaccination at the site of injection, regressing within 2 days. On very rare occasions, a slight transient rectal temperature increase might occur after vaccination (“very rare” corresponds to a frequency of adverse reactions less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals, including isolated reports).
If you notice any serious effects or other effects not mentioned in this package leaflet, please inform your veterinary surgeon.
For intramuscular use.
Primary vaccination: 2 injections of one dose (2 ml)
- From the age of 96 days, with an interval of 3 weeks between injections to achieve duration of immunity over 6 months.
- Between the age of 56 and 96 days, with an interval of 3 weeks between injections to achieve duration of immunity over 4 months.
Gilts and sows:
Primary vaccination: see above
A booster is possible at each stage of pregnancy and lactation. When vaccination is performed 14 days prior to farrowing with one dose (2 ml), it provides maternally-derived immunity to the piglets which protects them from clinical signs of influenza at least until day 33 after birth.
Maternally-derived immunity in the piglets interacts with antibody induction. Generally, maternally-derived antibodies induced by vaccination last for approx. 5-8 weeks after birth. In particular cases of multiple contacts of the sows with antigens (field infections + vaccination) the antibodies transmitted to the piglets may last until week 12 of life. In the latter case piglets should be vaccinated after the age of 96 days.

The vaccine stimulates an active immunity against Swine Influenza A virus subtypes H1N1, H3N2 and H1N2. It induces neutralizing and haemagglutination inhibiting antibodies against each of the three subtypes. When a single dose of the vaccine is administered 14 days prior to farrowing as a booster to previously vaccinated sows, the vaccine stimulates active immunity in order to provide maternally-derived immunity to the progeny against Swine Influenza A virus subtypes H1N1, H3N2 and H1N2.
