BETTER PREVENT THE PREVENTABLE

BY CHECKING ALL THE BOXES WITH A CUSTOM-MADE VACCINE

It’s hard to “check all the boxes” if you are designing a vaccination protocol that covers all the disease-causing bugs your animals may encounter, especially if you are limited to using only commercial vaccines.  A custom vaccine, also known as autogenous vaccine, is a useful tool veterinarians and livestock producers can use  to address new or uncommon strains of viral and/or bacterial pathogens affecting a specific herd when commercial vaccines just aren’t getting the job done.

Custom vaccines are killed (inactivated) viral and/or bacterial vaccines that contain herd specific antigens isolated and identified through diagnostics. Like most commercial killed vaccines, autogenous vaccines also include an adjuvant to improve the vaccinates immune response.

Our experienced staff has been producing custom vaccines for veterinarians and the producers they service for 20+ years and our entire team strives day-in and day-out to provide you with unparalleled customer service from start to finish.

The USDA approves the use for custom (autogenous) vaccines to protect animals against disease-causing organisms, by or under the direction of a veterinarian,  when:

  1. A fully licensed commercial vaccine is not available
  2. The organism exhibits a high degree of genetic variation and requires improved antigen specificity
  3. When commercially licensed products have failed to provide adequate protection

Examples of Common Custom Vaccines
