Contents

This vaccine contains a live avirulent strain of Salmonella typhimurium and is recommended for initial vaccination of day-old, healthy, susceptible chickens.

Salmune Indications

The vaccine will provide protection of internal organs, intestines and ceca against colonization by Salmonella typhimurium, Salmonella heidelberg, Salmonella hadar, Salmonella kentucky and Salmonella enteritidis.

Salmune Dosage And Administration

This vaccine is recommended for initial vaccination of healthy chickens at day of age using coarse spray or drinking water. If water vaccination is used, a second water vaccination is required at 7 days of age.

Directions for Administration by Spray Application: The spray application of this vaccine to chickens at day of age will provide protection through at least 7 weeks of age. If chickens are to be maintained past 7 weeks of age, a repeat vaccination is recommended.

Directions for Spray Use at the Hatchery:

1. Do not use gentamicin or ceftiofur antibiotics in ovo or at day of age, such as in Marek's vaccine, since they will interfere with vaccination.

2. Use cool, sterile, nonchlorinated water that contains no anti-microbials to reconstitute the vaccine. Do not use any other type of diluent to reconstitute the vaccine.

3. Reconstitute the vaccine at a rate of 70 mL vaccine per 1,000 chicks.

4. To each box of 100 chicks, administer 7 mL of vaccine by spraying approximately 12 inches above the box using a coarse spray nozzle.

5. Although this vaccine is not known to cause a human safety problem, it is advised to take precautions, such as wearing a mask and gloves, to avoid direct contact with the vaccine.

6. Take care to administer a full dose to each chick.

7. Ensure chicks are dry before administering this vaccine. Allow chicks to dry after vaccine administration and avoid chilling.

Directions for Administration by Drinking Water: Drinking water application of this vaccine at day of age and repeated at 7 days of age will provide protection through at least 7 weeks of age. If chickens are to be maintained past 7 weeks of age, a repeat vaccination is recommended.

Directions for Drinking Water Use:

1. Do not use gentamicin or ceftiofur antibiotics in ovo or at day of age, such as in Marek's vaccine, since they will interfere with vaccination. Discontinue water medication, sanitizers, and disinfectants 72 hours before vaccination. Do not resume any medication, sanitizers, or disinfectants in the water for 72 hours after all vaccine water has been consumed. The waterers should be thoroughly cleaned and rinsed before use. Do not use disinfecting solutions during cleaning as the disinfectant residue may destroy the vaccine. Drinking containers must be free of all disinfecting solutions and medicants prior to vaccination.

2. For repeat vaccination, deprive the birds of water for up to two hours prior to vaccination.

3. Tear off the seal from the vial containing the dried vaccine and remove the stopper.

4. Use clean, nonchlorinated water for rehydration of the dried vaccine. Do not use any other type of diluent to reconstitute the vaccine. Allow 2.7 mL for each day-old chick and 5 mL for each seven day-old chick.
