VACCINE
Prestige® 4
New Flu Strains
Indications

This product has been shown effective for the vaccination of healthy horses 6 months of age or older against Eastern and Western encephalomyelitis (EEE and WEE) viruses, equine influenza virus (EIV) and tetanus. Duration of immunity has been shown at 6 months for EIV. This product has been shown to decrease virus shedding of EIV. Foals nursing immune-dams should be vaccinated when maternal antibody levels will allow active immunization.

The Science of Protected

  • Provides 6 months of protection against EIV
  • Tetanus, EEE and WEE are core vaccinations recommended by the AAEP vaccine guidelines and are indicated in the immunization program for all horses each year.
  • Formulated to minimize reactions and maximize protection
  • All horses are at risk of developing tetanus, an often fatal disease
  • A combination of inactivated, concentrated, adjuvanted, tissue culture origin equine encephalomyelitis viruses (Eastern, Western and Venezuelan), equine influenza virus type H3N8 strains (EIV A/Equine 2/Kentucky/93 American, EIV A/Equine 2/Kentucky/02 American and EIV A/Equine 2/Newmarket/2/93 Eurasian) and tetanus toxoid. Intervet serological data suggest influenza cross protection against certain U.S. and European strains, including Kentucky 91, 93, 99, 02, Ohio 03, Newmarket/1/93, Newmarket/2/93, Suffolk 89 and South Africa 03.
  • Advanced filtration process through the Antigen Purification System (APS)
