READ IN FULL

Description

This vaccine is prepared from a single strain of Newcastle disease virus and a single strain of Bronchitis virus, Massachusetts Type, inactivated with formalin and suspended in the aqueous phase of an oil adjuvant emulsion.

Bron-Newcavac-M Indications For Use

The vaccine is indicated for the vaccination of chickens against Newcastle disease and infectious Bronchitis caused by Massachusetts Type virus. Chickens should be in good health when vaccinated. Sick or weak chickens will not develop adequate immunity.

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

Bron-Newcavac-M Dosage And Administration

Allow the vaccine to reach ambient temperature 16-27°C (60-80°F), before use and shake vigorously before and periodically during use. Inject 0.5 ml intramuscularly or subcutaneously in at least 3 week old chickens, using a medium sized needle. Do not vaccinate within 42 days before slaughter.

Vaccination Program

Although BRON-NEWCAVAC-M can be used for primary vaccination at any age, available evidence suggests that the best protection is obtained when BRON-NEWCAVAC-M is used for revaccination of chickens previously immunized with live Newcastle and Bronchitis vaccines. Do not administer this vaccine during the critical egg laying period from onset until after peak production.

Examples: Breeder and Layer pullets.

Primary vaccination with live Newcastle and Bronchitis vaccines on at least two occasions before the age of 12 weeks, with at least 4 weeks between the last live vaccine and BRON-NEWCAVAC-M and followed by BRON-NEWCAVAC-M (Newcastle-Bronchitis Vaccine, Inactivated) at 16-20 weeks.

Local conditions must be taken into consideration, and where necessary, veterinary advice should be sought.

Immunity

If the chickens are primed with live Newcastle and Mass. Bronchitis vaccine, the antibody response will be detectable after three or four weeks. Generally, in flocks revaccinated with BRON-NEWCAVAC-M a protective level of immunity will be achieved with only small variations between individual chickens.

It is evident that for optimal protection preceding vaccinations with live vaccines should have taken place.

Vaccination Reaction

This vaccine does not provoke clinical reactions. If shock is observed, this must usually be ascribed to stress of handling.

Storage Conditions

Store in the dark in a refrigerator between 2-7°C (35-45°F). DO NOT FREEZE.

PRECAUTIONS AND WARNINGS

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. If it is desired to vaccinate birds during lay, a drop in egg production may occur.

3. Do not administer this vaccine during the critical egg laying period from onset until after peak production.

4. Vaccinate market chickens by subcutaneous route only.

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

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

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

8. Use entire contents when first opened.

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

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

11. FOR VETERINARY USE ONLY.
