Part 1: Vaccine storage and handling

A common mistake made with vaccines involves improper handling of the vaccines. From the time the products arrive on the farm until they are used, the vaccines must be properly stored, following manufacturer specifications. If not, product quality may be impacted.

Another common mistake is improper administration. “When you’re administering vaccine to a pig, depending on the age, you may not be fully restraining it,” Jansen said. “We have to give all of the pigs a dose of vaccine, and it becomes more and more difficult.

“The pigs might be in a large pen where it’s hard to get them in an area where they can be given the vaccine with proper technique,” she added. “If something goes wrong in the process, it looks like our product failed, and that’s often not the case.”

It’s not unrealistic to say that if you checked the nasal cavities or tonsils of any group of pigs, you would find Strep suis. While the strain and impact can vary widely, this commensal bacterium is on virtually every hog farm.
