Description

This vaccine is formulated from a modified strain of Delaware Type Infectious Bronchitis Virus. The virus was received from the University of Delaware and was modified for high immunizing capability and milder reaction, i.e. snicking. The virus is grown under exacting standards of quality control in eggs produced by healthy chickens in closely supervised flocks.

Shor-Bron-D Indications For Use

This vaccine is recommended for vaccination of chickens at one day of age by coarse spray or at two weeks of age or older by the drinking water method of application as an aid in the prevention of infectious bronchitis (Delaware Type).

Vaccination Programs

Many factors must be considered in determining the proper vaccination program for a particular farm or poultry operation. To be fully effective, the vaccine must be administered to healthy receptive chickens held in a proper environment under good management. In addition, the response may be modified by the age of the chickens and their immune status. Seldom does one vaccination under field conditions produce complete protection for all individuals, in a given flock. The amount of protection required will vary with the type of operation and the degree of exposure that a flock is likely to encounter. For these reasons a program of periodic revaccination may be required.

Precautions

ONLY VACCINATE HEALTHY BIRDS

Consult your poultry veterinarian for further recommendations based on conditions existing in your area at any given time.

The vaccination program for replacement pullets should not be started after chickens are 15 weeks of age.

Chickens should not be placed on contaminated premises. Exposure should be avoided immediately after vaccination, because it takes 21 days to develop resistance.

All susceptible chickens on the same premises should be vaccinated at the same time. If this is not possible, then strict isolation and separate caretakers should be employed for non-vaccinated units. Efforts should be taken to reduce stress conditions at the time the vaccine is administered.

PREPARATION OF THE VACCINE

For Drinking Use Or Coarse Spray Use

DO NOT OPEN AND MIX THE VACCINE UNTIL READY TO BEGIN VACCINATION. USE VACCINE IMMEDIATELY AFTER MIXING.

The contents of the ampules are thawed rapidly by immersing in water at room temperature. Shake ampule to dispense contents. Then break ampule at its neck and immediately proceed as below.

CAUTION: AMPULES HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO EXPLODE ON SUDDEN TEMPERATURE CHANGES. DO NOT THAW IN HOT OR COLD WATER.

Draw contents of the ampule into a sterile 10cc syringe. Dilute immediately by filling the syringe slowly from a portion of the water.

The contents of the filled syringe are then added to the remaining water. The vaccine is ready for use.

Coarse Spray Administration

FOR CHICKENS 1 DAY OF AGE OR OLDER

The vaccine should be prepared at the rate of 700 ml of non-chlorinated water per 10,000 doses of vaccine. The vaccine is then added to the pressure tank reservoir of the spray apparatus. Each 100 chicks should receive 7 ml of vaccine solution.

Full Directions for use of the Spray Cabinet are available from the Company.
