Characteristics

The vaccine strains vCP2242 and vCP3011 are recombinant canarypox viruses expressing the haemagglutinin HA gene from the equine influenza virus strains A/eq/Ohio/03 (American strain, Florida sublineage clade 1) and A/eq/Richmond/1/07 (American strain, Florida sublineage clade 2), respectively. After inoculation, the viruses do not multiply in the horse but express the protective proteins. As a consequence, these components induce immunity against equine influenza virus [H3N8].
