- Protects against leptospirosis caused by L. borgpetersenii serovar hardjo (Type: hardjo-bovis), an antigen not contained in some standard L5 vaccines.
- Prevents hardjo-bovis bacteria from infecting the kidneys and reproductive tract, stopping transmission of disease.
- Provides 12-month duration of immunity (DOI) against hardjo-bovis urinary shedding, which means less time and labor required, increasing peace of mind.
- Helps prevent hardjo-bovis transmission in utero.
- Stimulates a cell-mediated immune response, increasing its ability to protect against hardjo-bovis.
- Helps provide strong placental and fetal protection, helping prevent long term maintenance host infections and fetal infections.
- Safe for use in pregnant cows, making it easy to implement whole-herd protection.
- Helps deliver protection in calves as young as four weeks of age, helping prevent hardjo-bovis.

Campylobacter Fetus-Leptospira Canicola-Grippotyphosa-Hardjo-Icterohaemorrhagiae-Pomona Bacterin
Spirovac VL5 helps provide producers with protection against disease caused by Campylobacter fetus (vibrio) and Leptospira (L. canicola, L. grippotyphosa, and L. icterohaemorrhagiae and L. pomona) including L. borgpetersenii serovar hardjo type hardjo-bovis.
- General directions: Vaccination of healthy cattle, including pregnant cows and heifers, is recommended. Shake well. Aseptically administer 5 mL subcutaneously or intramuscularly high on the side of the neck.
- Primary vaccination: Healthy cattle should receive two doses administered four to six weeks apart with booster doses given as necessary. When used as an aid in preventing genital or fetal infection, booster doses should be completed at least two weeks prior to breeding. Primary vaccination with this product in calves from four weeks of age with a second dose four to six weeks later will prevent infection, colonization and subsequent shedding of hardjo-bovis, a source of further infection in the herd.
- Revaccination: Annual revaccination with a single dose is recommended. Include all bulls in programs of vaccination. As part of normal biosecurity procedures, all replacement animals should begin a two-dose course of vaccination upon arrival.
- Good animal husbandry and herd health management practices should be employed.
- Store away from light at 2° - 7°C. Prolonged exposure to higher temperatures may adversely affect potency. Do not freeze.
- Use entire contents when first opened.
- Sterilized syringes and needles should be used to administer this vaccine.
- Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter.
- Occasional hypersensitivity reactions may occur up to 18 hours postvaccination. Owners should be advised to observe animals during this period. While this event appears to be rare overall, dairy cattle may be affected more frequently than other cattle. Animals affected may display excessive salivation, incoordination, and/or dyspnea. Animals displaying such signs should be treated immediately with epinephrine or equivalent. In nonresponsive animals, other modes of treatment should be considered.
- As with many vaccines, anaphylaxis may occur after use. Initial antidote of epinephrine is recommended and should be followed with appropriate supportive therapy.
- This product has been shown to be efficacious in healthy animals. A protective immune response may not be elicited if animals are incubating an infectious disease, are malnourished or parasitized, are stressed due to shipment or environmental conditions, are otherwise immunocompromised, or the vaccine is not administered in accordance with label directions.
