Administering intranasal vaccines is considered one of the most effective strategies to put protective immunity in place quickly and establish a strong foundation for future respiratory protection. These vaccines don’t just differ from injectable vaccines in route of administration. The nasal route of administration actually spurs a different immune response in cattle. This makes intranasal vaccines a key tool for producers battling respiratory illness in cattle, which has remained one of the top challenges to cattle health for decades.

Join Christopher Schneider, DVM, MS, Technical Services with Merck Animal Health, as he discusses the rationale and success behind intranasal vaccination in cattle. He will present important licensing data around response in calves to IBR, BRSV and PI3 antigens in Merck Animal Health’s new intranasal vaccine, Nasalgen 3®.
