Reading Time: < 1 minute

Fostera PRRS vaccine is now registered for use in Canada by Pfizer Animal Health as an aid in preventing disease associated with Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV), Respiratory Form, a disease that costs Canada’s pork industry an estimated $130 million annually.

Fostera PRRS is a modified live vaccine for the vaccination of healthy, susceptible swine three weeks of age, or older, in PRRSV-positive herds or seronegative pigs deemed at risk for exposure to PRRSV, as an aid in preventing respiratory disease associated with PRRSV.

Registered for use in young pigs, Fostera PRRS helps growing pigs defend against a PRRSV challenge, allowing them to increase their post-challenge weight gain compared to non-vaccinates groups. Fostera PRRS is available exclusively through Canadian veterinarians.
