Directions

For Drinking-water Vaccination

LS Mass II Newcastle-Bronchitis Vaccine is recommended for the vaccination of healthy chickens 2 weeks of age or older. If chickens are vaccinated by this route before 2 weeks of age, they should be revaccinated.

1. Discontinue use of medications or sanitizing agents in the drinking water 24 hours before vaccinating. Do not resume use for 24 hours following vaccination.

2. Water used for the drinking-water administration of a live virus vaccine must be non-chlorinated.

3. Provide enough waterers so two-thirds of the birds may drink at one time. Scrub waterers with fresh, clean, non-chlorinated water, and use no disinfectant. Let the waterers drain dry.

4. Turn off automatic waterers, so the only available water is the vaccine water. Do not give vaccine water through medication tanks.

5. Withhold water for 2 to 4 hours before vaccinating. Do not deprive the birds of water if the temperature is extremely high.

6. Remove seal from vaccine vial.

7. Remove stopper and half-fill vial with clean, cool, non-chlorinated water.

8. Replace stopper and shake until dissolved.

9. Use a clean container two-thirds filled with cool, clean, non-chlorinated water. Add dried milk at a rate of 284 grams (10 ounces) per 95 liters (25 gallons) of the final volume of vaccine solution. Stir the mixture until the dried milk is dissolved.

10. Add the rehydrated vaccine from the vial and again stir the contents thoroughly.

11. Next, add the mixture to the final volume of water, as follows:

Add this amount of Vaccine

to this final amount of water

for chickens 2 to 8 weeks old

for chickens over 8 weeks old

10,000 doses

95 to 190 liters (25 to 50 gallons)

190 to 380 liters (50 to 100 gallons)

12. Give 1 dose of vaccine per bird.

13. Distribute the final volume of (vaccine) water evenly among the clean waterers. Do not place the waterers in direct sunlight. Resume regular water administration only after all the vaccine water has been consumed.

Revaccination

For growing chickens intended for replacement flocks or breeder flocks, it is advisable to revaccinate in advance of the onset of egg production.

Precautions

If possible, vaccinate all susceptible birds on the premises at the same time. For 10 to 14 days after vaccinating, avoid carrying vaccine particles on shoes, clothing, etc., into areas where there are unvaccinated birds.

Newcastle Disease Vaccine virus is capable of causing a mild, irritating eye infection in humans, lasting about 3 days. Do not allow vaccine to contact the eyes.
