USDA approves flu vaccine for swine

Email

WILLMAR -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture has issued a conditional license to Pfizer Animal Health, of Lincoln, Neb., for a pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine to vaccinate pigs against the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus. This is the first pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccine license issued by USDA.

The vaccine should not only help producers protect their swine herds, but also protect themselves from economic losses in the event their herds contract the virus.
