Directions For Use

1. Vaccinate healthy one-day-old chicks only.

2. Avoid early exposure of chicks to Marek’s and infectious bursal disease virus challenge.

3. Use Zoetis Inc. diluent only. Store diluent at not over 27°C (80°F).

4. Wear protective clothing when withdrawing vaccine from liquid-nitrogen refrigerator; protect hands with gloves, wear long sleeves, and use a face mask or goggles.

5. Before opening liquid-nitrogen refrigerator, prepare a clean, wide-mouthed container with a capacity of 1 to 5 gallons (3.8-19 liters). Half-fill this container with water 27°C (80°F).

6. When withdrawing a cane of vials from the liquid-nitrogen refrigerator, expose only the vial to be used immediately. When removing a vial from the cane, hold palm of gloved hand away from face and body. Dilute only 1 vial at a time. Immediately replace cane with remaining vials into the canister in the liquid-nitrogen refrigerator.

7. Place the vial into prepared container half-filled with water 27°C (80°F). The frozen material thaws rapidly. When thawed, towel-dry vial.

8. The vials are pre-scored below the gold band. Before snapping off the top portion, wrap vial with a cloth, holding the top part away from face and body.

9. Using a sterile mixing syringe with a 1 1/2-inch (3.8 cm) 18-gauge needle, draw up a small volume of diluent. Then draw the contents from the vaccine vial into the syringe and swirl gently. Insert needle into diluent bottle and slowly expel contents of syringe. Add vaccine from each 1,000 dose vial to 200 mL sterile diluent. Mix well by gently swirling the bottle. Withdraw a small amount of the reconstituted vaccine and use to rinse each vial injecting the rinses back into reconstituted vaccine. The vaccine is ready for use.

10. While vaccinating, maintain the diluted vaccine at 21° to 27°C (70° to 80°F). If the temperature cannot be held as low as 27°C (80°F), place the diluent bottle containing the diluted vaccine in an ice bath.

11. For vaccination, an automatic syringe with 22- to 20-gauge needles, 3/8- to 1/2-inch (0.95 to 1.27 cm) long, is recommended. Make certain that all equipment is sterilized and change needles frequently.

12. Inject each chick subcutaneously with 0.2 mL of the vaccine.

13. After diluting, use the vaccine within 2 hours. Do not save any vaccine that has been diluted. Burn vaccine containers and all unused contents. Dispose of all materials in a proper manner.

Warning

Take all precautionary measures, including the use of gloves and face shield or goggles, to avoid potential hazards of handling liquid-nitrogen and the possibility of explosion of glass vials as they are taken from the liquid-nitrogen refrigerator or canister or holding cane, or as they are placed in the thawing container. When removing the vial from the cane, hold palm of the gloved hand away from face and body.

Before using this vaccine, be certain to read directions.
