Breedervac-IV-Plus

This treatment applies to the following species:
Manufacturer: Intervet/Merck Animal Health

BURSAL DISEASE-NEWCASTLE DISEASE-BRONCHITIS-REOVIRUS VACCINE, Standard & Variant, Mass Type, Killed Virus

This vaccine is prepared using specific pathogen free (SPF) or approved substrates and contains Newcastle disease virus, infectious bronchitis disease virus (Massachusetts type), Standard, GLS, and Delaware (A and E) strains of infectious bursal disease virus, and two strains of avian reovirus (1733 and 2408), inactivated and suspended in the aqueous phase of an oil adjuvant emulsion.

Breedervac-IV-Plus Indications

For the vaccination of healthy chickens 3 weeks of age or older as an aid in the prevention of Newcastle disease, Infectious Bursal Disease (Standard, Delaware and GLS variants), Massachusetts Type infectious bronchitis and diseases caused by avian reoviruses. The Newcastle and bronchitis fractions are used primarily for protection of the breeder hen. The IBD fraction is used primarily for early protection of progeny with maternal antibodies, and the Reovirus fraction is used to protect the breeder hen against tenosynovitis and the progeny against malabsorption.

ADMINISTRATION: Allow the vaccine to reach ambient temperature, 16° to 27°C (60° to 80°F), shake well before use and periodically during use. Inject 0.5 ml intramuscularly or subcutaneously in chickens using an 18-gauge x 1/2” or 1/4” needle.

VACCINATION PROGRAM: Although this vaccine can be used for primary vaccination at three weeks of age or older, available evidence suggests that the best protection is obtained when it is used for revaccination of chickens previously immunized (primed) with the same type of live virus vaccines.

Example: Breeder chickens.

Primary vaccination with modified live mild avian reovirus vaccine prior to 12 weeks of age.

Primary vaccination with live bursal disease vaccine prior to 12 weeks of age.

Primary vaccination with live Newcastle and bronchitis vaccines on at least two occasions prior to 12 weeks of age.

These primary vaccinations would then be followed by vaccination with BREEDERVAC-IV-PLUS at 16-22 weeks of age. A minimum of four weeks should elapse between the last live virus priming and injection with BREEDERVAC-IV-PLUS. Local conditions must be taken into consideration and, where necessary, veterinary advice should be sought.

IMMUNITY: It is evident that for optimal protection, preceding vaccination with live vaccines (priming) should have taken place. Generally, in flocks vaccinated with BREEDERVAC-IV-PLUS, a protective level of immunity will be achieved with only small variations between individual chickens. Revaccination during molt is recommended.

Store at 2° to 7°C (35° to 45°F) in the dark. Do not freeze.

CAUTIONS:

1. TO AVOID HUMAN INJECTION, EXTREME CAUTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN INJECTING ANY OIL EMULSION VACCINE. ACCIDENTAL HUMAN INJECTION MAY CAUSE SERIOUS LOCAL REACTIONS. CONTACT A PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY IF ACCIDENTAL HUMAN INJECTION OCCURS.

2. Do not administer this vaccine during the critical egg laying period from onset until after peak production. Administration of this product during the lay period may result in a drop in egg production.

3. Injection of inactivated vaccine into breast muscle may create processing plant problems under certain conditions.

4. Do not vaccinate chickens within 42 days before slaughter.

5. This vaccine contains gentamicin, neomycin and thimerosal as preservatives.

6. Do not mix this vaccine with any other substances.

7. Use entire contents when first opened.

8. Ensure that vaccination equipment is clean and sterile before use.

9. Do not use vaccination equipment with rubber parts, as the oil emulsion may attack certain types of rubber.

10. The use of any inactivated vaccine may cause false positive results on Mycoplasma plate tests. Avoid Mycoplasma testing prior to ten weeks post-vaccination.
