In unvaccinated herds, all pigs should be vaccinated, regardless of age or sex. Introduced pigs should be vaccinated twice before entering the herd. Piglets born to vaccinated sows should receive the first dose at weaning (4 weeks of age) and a second dose 4 to 6 weeks later. Booster doses: All animals in the herd, including all males, should be revaccinated every 6 months to maintain immunity. Breeding females should be given their semiannual booster about 1 month before farrowing. This will pass on temporary immunity to piglets via colostrum in addition to protecting the sows.
