Infection with Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae in swine has a significant economic impact on pig production systems worldwide. Since a character zoonotic disease, it poses a problem for public health and veterinary services. the clinical and pathological features of the disease have been well-described. Inactivated and attenuated vaccines are available to prevent development of clinical signs of swine erysipelas. In Albania, repeatedly has had outbreaks in swine erysipelas. For too long in our country has been produced a liquid alive attenuated vaccine with strains VR2. This vaccine has a short validity and cannot be used in any epizootic situation. For these reasons we proposed to produce a oily inactivated vaccine, against erysipelas in pigs with a long validity and can be used in any situation epizootic. This constitutes also main purpose of this paper.

Keywords: swine, erysipelas, oily vaccine.
