FUTVAC is used to control foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) in cloven-hoofed animals such as cattle, buffaloes, sheep and goats as well as pigs.
FUTVAC contains inactivated FMD virus antigens of types ‘O’ (strain IND/O/R2/75), ‘A’ (strain IND/A/40/2000) and ‘Asia1’ (strain IND/Asia1/63/72). The viruses are propagated on BHK-21 cell culture, inactivated with aziridine compound before purification and concentration. Mineral oil is added as an adjuvant and Thimerosal (≤0.02% w/v) as a preservative.
DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION:
Cattle, Buffaloes and Pigs : 2 ml.
Sheep and Goats : 1 ml.
For deep intramuscular use. Shake well before use.
Primary Vaccination: At 4 months of age
Booster Dose: 1 month after primary vaccination
Re-Vaccination: Every 6 Months
VACCINATION OF PREGNANT ANIMALS:
FUTVAC can be used in vaccination of pregnant animals. However to be on safer side, the vaccination of the animals in advanced stage of pregnancy may be avoided.
Immunize only healthy animals. Malnutrition, infestation with worms, administration of immunosuppressive agents such as corticosteroids or radiotherapy will interfere with the immune response to vaccine.
Generally, there are no adverse reactions noticed. Occasionally a transient palpable swelling may occur at the site of injection, which will subside in 24-48 hours.
STORAGE & TRANSPORT:
Store and transport the vaccine between 2 and 8°C until use. At no stage should the vaccine be allowed to freeze. Protect from sunlight.
