Vaccination is an adequate means to prevent and reduce problems with PIA. MSD Animal Health has successfully completed many years of work to achieve an effective PIA vaccine. The vaccine can be administered from the age of 3 weeks and provides protection from 4 weeks up to 21 weeks after vaccination. PIA leads to loss of growth, vaccination reduces this. Vaccination also results in fewer deaths, lower infection pressure and less diarrhoea caused by Lawsonia infection. The vaccination has already proven positive in practice.
