The virus vaccine fraction is inactivated by use of beta-propiolactone and the combined product contains Quil A as an adjuvant.
Equilis Equenza T Indications For Use
As an aid in the prevention of equine influenza caused by strains of Influenza A/equine1 and A/equine2 and tetanus caused by Clostridium tetani.
Equilis Equenza T Dosage And Administration
Inject the contents of 1 syringe (1 mL) by deep intramuscular injection. All horses and ponies, not previously immunized, should receive an initial vaccination and a booster vaccination four weeks later. This should be followed by revaccination at six months and twelve months after the initial vaccination.
Thereafter, a booster should be given at twelve month intervals.
Because of possible interference by maternally derived antibodies, foals should ideally not be vaccinated before six months of age. If vaccination is intended before this age, foals should be tested for the presence of maternally derived antibodies, but foals should be at least 4 months of age before vaccination.
Equilis Equenza T Caution
1. Vaccinate only healthy animals. Diseased, stressed or parasitized animals may not respond adequately to vaccination and may not develop satisfactory immunity.
2. Use sterile injection equipment only.
3. The injection site should be clean to avoid contamination, which can result in local reactions at the injection site.
4. Follow directions carefully.
5. FOR VETERINARY USE ONLY.
6. In case of anaphylactic reaction, administer epinephrine.
It is recommended that a record of vaccination be kept for each animal, indicating date of vaccination, lot number and date of expiration of the vaccine and name of the person doing the vaccination.
Packaging And Storage
