Pork producers and veterinarians who want to vaccinate pigs against porcine circovirus type-2 will have adequate supplies of Ingelvac CircoFlex vaccine to meet their needs, according to the manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica.
Porcine circovirus associated disease has spread rapidly in the last decade to become the top swine-health challenge of many North American pork producers. In the past few years, vaccine demand has outpaced supply which has hampered producers’ efforts in effectively managing the disease.
“The company’s increased manufacturing efforts have helped increase the supply of available vaccine to as many producers as possible,” says Tim Bettington, BIVI senior associate director of swine marketing.
“Boehringer Ingelheim, along with the entire swine-health industry, has been working hard to increase the supply and availability of our circovirus vaccine to all producers across the country as quickly as possible,” Bettington explains. “These efforts have paid off; ample supplies of Ingelvac CircoFlex vaccine are now available.”
