CHICKEN ANEMIA VIRUS VACCINE

Live Virus

For Drinking Water Use

Note: Read this circular before commencing vaccination.

Description

This vaccine contains chicken infectious anemia virus for administration in the drinking water. The vaccine is stable allowing it to be stored at refrigeration temperature of 35-45°F (2-7°C).

Circomune W Indications

This vaccine is recommended for use in healthy breeder chickens to provide maternal antibodies to progeny as an aid in the prevention of chicken infectious anemia due to chicken infectious anemia virus. The vaccine is administered in the drinking water to breeder chickens 9 to 12 weeks of age. It is not recommended to vaccinate chickens in lay as vaccine virus may be shed in the feces and eggs of vaccinated birds. Avoid spread of vaccine virus to non-vaccinated birds. Additionally, avoid vaccinating breeders older than 12 weeks of age.

The vaccine is also recommended for use in healthy broiler chickens as an aid in the prevention of chicken infectious anemia due to chicken infectious anemia virus. The vaccine is administered in the drinking water to broiler chickens at least 1 week of age or older.

USE, DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR DRINKING WATER ADMINISTRATION FOR BREEDER CHICKENS AT 9 TO 12 WEEKS OF AGE

1. The waterers should be thoroughly cleaned before use. Do not use disinfecting solutions during cleaning as the disinfectant residue may inactivate the virus. Drinking containers must be free of all disinfecting solutions for 48 hours prior to vaccination and for 24 hours after vaccination.

2. Deprive the birds of water for one or two hours prior to vaccination, depending on ambient temperature.

3. Shake the vial well before opening. Tear off the aluminum seal from the vial containing the vaccine and remove the stopper.

4. Use clean, cold, nonchlorinated water for diluting the vaccine. Mix a 1,000 dose vial with 2 gallons (7.6 L) of water, a 2,000 dose vial with 4 gallons (15.2 L) of water, a 5,000 dose vial with 10 gallons (38 L) of water, a 10,000 dose vial with 20 gallons (76 L) of water, and a 20,000 dose vial with 40 gallons (152 L) of water.

5. Provide enough waterers so that all birds may have an opportunity to drink the vaccine-treated water.

6. Avoid exposure of the waterers to direct sunlight.

7. Do not resume watering until water containing vaccine has been consumed. Then continue watering with untreated water for 24 hours before resuming the normal watering practice.

8. Vaccinating with less than one dose per bird may fail to satisfactorily protect.

USE, DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR DRINKING WATER ADMINISTRATION FOR YOUNG CHICKENS AT LEAST 1 WEEK OF AGE OR OLDER

1. The waterers should be thoroughly cleaned before use. Do not use disinfecting solutions during cleaning as the disinfectant residue may inactivate the virus. Drinking containers must be free of all disinfecting solutions for 48 hours prior to vaccination and for 24 hours after vaccination.

2. Deprive the birds of water for one or two hours prior to vaccination, depending on ambient temperature and the age of the chickens.

3. Shake the vial well before opening. Tear off the aluminum seal from the vial containing the vaccine and remove the stopper.

4. Use clean, cold, nonchlorinated water for diluting the vaccine. Mix a 1,000 dose vial with 1.3 gallons (5 L) of water, a 2,000 dose vial with 2.6 gallons (10 L) of water, a 5,000 dose vial with 6.5 gallons (25 L) of water, a 10,000 dose vial with 13 gallons (50 L) of water, and a 20,000 dose vial with 26 gallons (100 L) of water.

5. Provide enough waterers so that all birds may have an opportunity to drink the vaccine-treated water.

6. Avoid exposure of the waterers to direct sunlight.

7. Do not resume watering until water containing vaccine has been consumed. Then continue watering with untreated water for 24 hours before resuming the normal watering practice.

8. Vaccinating with less than one dose per bird may fail to satisfactorily protect.

Warning

Carefully follow directions for age of administration. Vertical transmission of the vaccine virus from breeding chickens was not demonstrated in Biomune Co. studies. However, to avoid the risk of vertical transmission, it is recommended not to vaccinate breeding chickens after 12 weeks of age. Store vaccine between 35 to 45°F (2-7°C). Use entire contents of the vial when first opened. Burn the vial and all unused contents. Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. Contains gentamicin and amphotericin B as preservatives. Do not administer less than one dose per bird. All susceptible chickens should be vaccinated at the same time. Avoid stress conditions during and following vaccination.

Notice

This vaccine has undergone rigid potency, safety and purity tests, and meets the requirements of Biomune Co. The response following vaccination is dependent on many factors, including but not limited to, conditions of vaccine storage and handling by the user, administration of the vaccine, health and responsiveness of the individual chickens, and the degree of field exposure.
