Ingelvac PRRS® MLV, a leading modified-live PRRS vaccine, has been trusted for over 20 years to protect the swine industry against respiratory and reproductive symptoms of PRRSv.

Ingelvac PRRS® MLV is a modified-live PRRS vaccine that is proven safe in pigs as well as gilts and sows at any stage of production in PRRS positive herds. It provides cross protection against heterologous challenge; (including Lelystad virus) and has shown to significantly reduce reproductive failure and respiratory disease due to PRRS virus. 1,2

  • Trusted and field proven
  • Cost effective
  • Unique in its ability to be used in pigs (3 weeks or older), gilts, and sows at ANY stage of production
  • Available in three convenient sizes (10, 50, and 250 dose)

Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) is a $664 million dollar problem.3 It has a devastating impact on pig performance, overall production and profits. Unlike many other swine diseases, the unique, single-strand RNA structure of the PRRS virus has made it a challenge for a generation of pork producers.

For over 20 years, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc. has been helping the industry combat PRRS. With Ingelvac PRRS® vaccines, technical expertise, collaborative research and diagnostic advancements, we are working with veterinarians and producers to win the battles against this challenging disease.

Ingelvac PRRS® MLV utilizes the same intramuscular (IM) dose size (2 mL) for pigs, adult breeding-age or pregnant females.

Pigs, gilts and sows: Ingelvac PRRS® MLV is recommended for use in healthy susceptible swine in PRRS virus-positive herds according to label direction. Using aseptic technique, administer a single 2 mL dose intramuscularly (IM) for the respiratory and reproductive form of the disease. The duration of immunity is throughout the finishing or gestation period, or at least 4 months post vaccination.

The vaccine can be used at any stage of production. Revaccination of the whole herd can occur every 3-4 months or as directed by your veterinarian.

DO NOT VACCINATE BOARS.
