Part 2: Selecting and training caregivers for effective vaccination

Vaccinations challenge most pig caregivers. The task is physically and mentally exhausting. Yet administering a vaccine properly continues to be one of the most important things done for a pig in its lifetime.

Selecting and properly training caregivers helps ensure vaccinations are completed correctly. Unfortunately, training is not always conducted in a thorough manner. High turnover, language difficulties, as well as other issues in different hog units contribute to lapses in caregiver training.

“We have to arm these people with as much knowledge as we can,” Jansen stated. “They need to understand why they are giving vaccines and how vaccines work.

“And if they care about pigs and understand the importance of vaccines, they are more likely to go above and beyond,” she added. “If they administer the vaccine to a pig and it moves, they are going to chase that pig down and make sure it gets a full dose. Those people are very hard to find.”
