Pregnant gilts and sows are primary vaccinated 8 to 6 weeks prior to expected farrowing and revaccinated 4 to 2 weeks prior to expected farrowing. The sows are maintained in immunity by regular revaccination 4 to 2 weeks prior to every next farrowing. In case the period between two farrowing exceeds 10 months, it is advisable to perform vaccination and revaccination according to the above mentioned process. Born piglets coming from immunized mothers are protected against atrophic rhinitis of pigs by colostral immunity. In a case the young animals are vaccinated, it is advisable to perform primary vaccination from 4 months of age with revaccination after 3 to 4 weeks. Breeding boars are maintained in immunity by regular revaccination performed every 6 months.
