The Science of Exceptional

OVERVIEW

THE SCIENCE OF EXCEPTIONAL

An effective intranasal vaccine for equine influenza virus.

  • Just one dose required for primary immunization or for a booster immunization following any other equine influenza virus (EIV) vaccine
  • Proven safe and effective even in horses immunosuppressed by long-distance transport or exercise1
  • Intranasal route of administration leaves no risk for an injection site reaction
  • When the vaccine replicates in the horse’s nasal mucosa, a rapid local immune response occurs. The horse develops an immune response that combats disease similar to when the horse is exposed to a virulent (disease-causing) wild strain of the equine influenza virus.
  • Rapid onset of immunity ‐ just five to seven days in naive horses2
  • Recommended for use during EIV outbreaks3
  • This vaccine is a lyophilized preparation containing an attenuated, cold-adapted, viable equine influenza virus type H3N8 strain (EIV A/Equine 2/Kentucky/91). Contains no preservatives.

INDICATIONS

This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy horses 11 months of age or older against disease caused by EIV. Duration of immunity has been shown to be at least 6 months. For more information regarding safety and efficacy data, go to productdata.aphis.usda.gov. This product has been shown to be effective against virus shedding of EIV.

ADMINISTRATION

Dose
Administer a single 1 mL dose intranasally in one nostril. The dose is administered into the nasal passages with a special proprietary applicator attached to a luer lock syringe. For more information on revaccination frequency, consult your veterinarian.
