Global Herd Protection



  • Early onset of immunity
  • Inactivated whole virus for more complete immune response
  • Decreased impact of PVC2-Associated Disease1

Circovac® Dosing

  • 1 dose = 0.5mL, IM
  • From 3 weeks of age
  • One injection

Gilts & Sows


  • Protects piglets against early infection
  • Safeguards piglet health and growth potential

Circovac® Dosing

  • 1 dose = 2 mL, IM
  • Primary Vaccination
    • 2 injections before farrowing, 3 weeks apart, with the second injection 3 weeks before farrowing
  • One injection
    • One injection at each gestation, at least 2 – 4 weeks before farrowing

Why do sows require a higher dose?

While a lower piglet dose may protect the breeding animal against PCV2 disease, a higher dose is required to achieve sufficient maternal immunity to protect piglets.
