Description:

  • Equivac S is used in the control of strangles due to Streptococcus equi subspecies equi in horses.
  • Equivac S is one of a range of Equivac products available for tetanus and strangles treatment and control.

Pack sizes:

  • 20 x 1 mL syringes.
  • Equivac S provides a means of vaccinating for strangles alone, where simultaneous vaccination for tetanus is not required, for example:
    1. During the primary vaccination program, the first dose may be Equivac 2 in 1, the second dose may be Equivac S and the third dose may be Equivac 2 in 1, where the interval between each dose is not less than 2 weeks.
    2. In an optimal vaccination booster program for strangles involving boosters given every 6 months, Equivac 2 in 1 could be administered annually with Equivac S being administered mid-way between annual Equivac 2 in 1 doses.
  • Dosage:

    • See product leaflet for full instructions.
    • 1 mL injected intra-muscularly.
    • For primary immunisation of horses against strangles, horses 3 months of age or older should be given 3 doses of vaccine at intervals no less than 2 weeks apart. For ongoing immunisation, booster doses should be given annually, or every 6 months for horses at higher risk of exposure. Equivac® 2 in 1 may be used for strangles vaccination where tetanus inclusion is also required.
    • The product leaflet should be consulted for guidance as to the use of strangles vaccine in the event of an outbreak.
    • It is recommended that strangles vaccination be a component of a herd-health biosecurity-focussed management program for the prevention and control of strangles in horses.

    Storage:

    Store between 2°C and 8°C. (Refrigerate. Do not freeze). Protect from light.
