Clear to slightly turbid, reddish to pale-pink coloured suspension.
Active immunisation of pigs from the age of 8 weeks onwards against pandemic H1N1 porcine influenza virus to reduce viral lung load and virus excretion.
Onset of immunity: 7 days after primary vaccination
Duration of immunity: 3 months after primary vaccination
A transient increase in rectal temperature, not exceeding 2 °C, is common after vaccination and this does not persist for more than one day.
A transient swelling up to 2 cm3 may occur at the site of injection, these reactions are common but resolve within 5 days.
The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention: - very common (more than 1 in 10 animals displaying adverse reaction(s) during the course of one treatment)
- common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals)
- uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals)
- rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals)
- very rare (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.
Dosage for each species, route(s) and method of administration
For intramuscular use
Vaccination: 2 injections of one dose (1 ml) from the age of 56 days, with an interval of 3 weeks between injections.
The efficacy of revaccination has not been investigated and therefore no revaccination schedule is proposed.
Maternally-derived antibodies in piglets interfere with the RESPIPORC FLUpan H1N1 mediated immunity. Generally, maternally-derived antibodies induced by vaccination last for approximately 5-8 weeks after birth.
In case of exposure of sows with antigens (field infections and/or vaccination) the antibodies transmitted to the piglets can interfere with active vaccination at 12 weeks of age. In this case piglets should be vaccinated after the age of 12 weeks.

The vaccine stimulates an active immunity against pandemic porcine influenza A/Jena/VI5258/2009 (H1N1)pandemic09-like virus. It induces neutralising and haemagglutination- inhibiting antibodies against this subtype. The antibody responses mentioned in the following have been documented in pigs without maternally derived immunity. Neutralising antibodies in serum have been detected in more than 75% of the immunised pigs on day 7 after primary immunisation, lasting in more than 75% of the pigs for over 3 months. Hemagglutination inhibiting antibodies have been detected in 15-100% of the immunised pigs on day 7 after primary immunisation which disappeared in the majority of animals within 1 to 4 weeks thereafter.
Efficacy of the vaccine was examined in laboratory challenge studies in pigs without maternally derived antibodies and was demonstrated against the following strains;
FLUAV/Hamburg/NY1580/2009(H1N1)pdm09 (human origin),
FLUAV/swine/Schallern/IDT19989/2014 (H1N1)pdm09 (swine origin) and
FLUAV/sw/Teo(Spain)/AR641/2016 (H1N1)pdm09 (swine origin).
Cardboard box with 1 polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottle of 25 doses (25 ml) or 50 doses (50 ml) with a rubber stopper and flanged cap.
