Covexin Plus IndicationsCOVEXIN® PLUS vaccine is recommended for the active immunization of healthy cattle 3 months of age or older as an aid in the prevention of disease caused by Clostridium tetani, C. chauvoei, C. septicum, C. novyi Type B, C. haemolyticum, C. sordellii, and C. perfringens Types C & D. Immunity is also provided as an aid in the prevention of diseases caused by the beta and epsilon toxins of an additional organism, C. perfringens Type B. Although C. perfringens Type B is not a significant problem in Canada, immunity is derived from a combination of Type C (beta) and Type D (epsilon) C. perfringens fractions.
Administration And DosageShake well. Inject 2 mL subcutaneously followed by a 2 mL dose 3 weeks later. Calves vaccinated at 3-6 months of age should be given a 3rd vaccination with either COVEXIN® PLUS, or another vaccine containing C. perfringens Type D epsilon toxoid, to aid in the prevention of disease caused by C. perfringens Type D. Revaccinate annually with 2 mL prior to periods of extreme risk or parturition.
